The wall that held the "Empire Uniform Mfg. Co." sign is gone but the building remains. If you look closely at the brick building on the left, notice that the top floor was removed and the arches lowered; they are now level with the top of the building on the right. A new multi-story apartment building was then added above that in 1998.
Notice also to the far right of the 1996 photo, above the brown brick, you can see an "&" peeking out. That is the same "&" as in my previous Kleiser Signs post.
You can see this view from the corner of NW 4th and Everett.
