It is bound to be crushed between the neighboring buildings. The weather is not too good, as it often changes quickly in this town. I wonder what the owners of this place did to manage to keep this tiny place in the heart of this very highly priced street. Realtors converted to a beauty salon ? You can have your nails polished here but be aware that they also mend your shoes, cut new keys and repair watches. All very profitable businesses. I wonder whether this building was constructed before the great fire of 1906. Perhaps at the time it first opened it was the biggest building in the street ? It has all the elements of a prestigious, grand shop… in a smaller town that may have been San Francisco at the times. It might be a historical landmark that no one dares to tear down, or maybe the surface is not large enough to construct some other more yielding office building. It does remind me of an obscure Ansel Adams picture of a very different style showing a very animated street taken from the entrance of a shop. The complete opposite, but it has this "small town main street " look that this lonely house conveys, I don't know why.
