Pep Plant Food

It's probably a good thing this building on the southwest corner of NW 13th and Marshall was torn down March 12, 2007; from the looks of it, it was only a matter of time before it became a large pile of bricks on its own.

"Pep Plant Food" and "Feed Concentrates" signs were still very visible on the east face, while other signs (above second and third floors) were too faded to read or had been painted over in the past.

The front (north) was in much the same condition.
Years of weathering rendered the south-facing backside indecipherable.
This block and the adjacent block to the east (NW 12th to 14th between Lovejoy and Marshall) is to become a Safeway store, retail, parking and residence buildings.
