|Caption||During the first decade of the 20th century, the Crescent Manufacturing Company occupied the ground floor of a building at the corner of Jackson Street and Occidental Avenue, near Pioneer Square. The firm imported coffee, tea and spices and also manufactured flavorings and ingredients for baking. Maring & Blake, a photoengraving and printing company, occupied the second floor of the building.|
This photo, taken sometime between 1903 and 1905, shows the Crescent Manufacturing Company offices near Pioneer Square. A delivery wagon and a pile of empty crates wait by the sidewalk (lower l.). Judging by the pile of tools and bricks on the sidewalk (lower r.) the street is being paved or repaired.
