The Frank Brown Building 1940
GARAGE IS BEING REBUILT
Several men are busily engaged in rebuilding the Brown Garage on S. First St., between State and East St., on the Maryland side of Delmar. The building was built twenty years ago by Frank Brown, who operated a garage in Delmar for many years. The garage was closed in 1929 and since that time the building which was built at a cost of eighteen thousand dollars has not been used.
The building was recently purchased by a Washington produce broker, who is rebuilding the garage for a large warehouse in which to store produce purchased in this section by his company. The structure has been torn down and only the outer wall made of concrete blocks has been left standing. The cost of reconstruction will be approximately ten thousand dollars and will employ ten men for more than three months.
Note; I did a post on the Frank Brown building back in February 2008.
