Quite A Mystery Scoob

I really have no idea what this building is or what it was in the past. The building is on University Avenue in St Paul. I really like the brick work on the face of this building. I must point out the cleaning bottle in the upper set of windows. I wonder how long it has been sitting there as the building is quite vacant. It looks like it may have been a dance hall of some sort just by looking at the type of building, perhaps just a tavern of some sort, who knows.

Hi, Slinger. Can you tell me approximately where on University Avenue this is? I went to Hamline in the late 70's and used to take the bus to Minneapolis and St Paul to get away from my books, and I'm trying to see if I can remember something.

Hummm, I'm going to have to guess on this and say if you were on University and Rice traveling towards Minneapolis, it would be about 3/4th of a mile down University Ave on your right.

I still think it was on one of the bus routes, and I've been staring at maps, but nothing. I'm thinking it might have been painted another colour back then, possibly very brightly. By the way, thank you for the Minnesota links, too.
