Old world charm

England? Germany? Some other European county?

Actually it is downtown Canandaigua, nestled in the NY Finger Lake country. This building stands side-by-side by some very nondescript commercial store fronts from the 30's and 40's. In fact if you did not stop to look up you would completely miss this facade. Which would be a pity... it is a nice looking structure.

I wonder what the story is behind this building? I am sure construction was a premium. Why was it built here? What was it for? Today the first floor is only used as a cut-rate jewelry store.
