|The oldest portion of Dayton's enormous store, on|
the southwest corner of Nicollet and Seventh Street.
The original Radisson hotel can be seen to the
right of the store.
|The store was expanded along Eighth Street in the|
1930s and again in the 1950s, resulting in a massive,
twelve story block, crowned by the renowned
Sky Room restaurant.
|The newer block presented an imposing face|
on Nicollet Avenue.
|The newer block closed a vista along Lasalle Avenue.|
It began as a two-story parking garage which
eventually formed a base for the tall store building.
