It is time for a Throwback Thursday! Today we have a photo taken sometime in 2000 by Steve Heath (above), from across Webster Street compared to a photo taken on 7/5/17 from the same spot (below). Notice that all the windows are boarded up, there is a ton of overgrowth, and the door to enter The Deli on the corner of the building doesn’t even exist yet. Also missing is the entrance ramp and doors in the center of the building, leading to the lobby and our Warehouse banquet room.
In the last 17 years we have made quite a few improvements! We now host two popular banquet rooms – The Loft and The Warehouse – as well as a popular lunch spot – The Deli. The foliage is under control now, we’ve installed some new bright LED lights, and we are proudly hanging our Railman 2016 banner.
Photo credits to Steve Heath and Dan West of west2k.com. This photo in particular was taken from http://www.west2k.com/ohstations/montgomery.shtml (you can also view an old photo of the 2nd Street Market here). This site is a great resource for anyone interested in old train stations, especially those found in Ohio – make sure to check them out!
Now it is your turn Dayton! We would love to see if you have any or can find any photos of our building, inside or out, from any time period. If you ever visited the Webster Street Market, rocked out at Seven Timbers Live, attended one of the first events at Top of the Market (when it was literally on top of the Webster Street Market), or even knew The Deli when it still had the glass display case – let us know! Send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with any information that you can (date the photo was taken, who took the photo, website or resource where you found the photo, etc). Anyone that sends us a photo that we use will receive a $20 gift card for The Deli!
If you would like any further information about our building that may assist your Googling, please email us at email@example.com!
Have a great day Dayton!
