An historic building with a variety of occupants As plans for the 25-story Broadway at Center project unfold, some long-familiar buildings may disappear, including Ginny�s Fine Fabrics at 12 South Broadway (right). An wide array of businesses has operated at this location over the years. The first record (1904) lists Roth and Freeman, an agricultural implement dealer. Future years show Rochester Fur Company, Rochester Light & Power Utility, Southern Minnesota Gas and Electric, Interstate Power, Modern Broadway Market, Harold Golod Liquors, Broadway Bar, Jensen Realty, Broadway Circus Bar (upper far left, 1954), J.C Penny (temporarily, due to fire), Singer Sewing Machine, Sundance Outfitters, and Country Bridal. Ginny�s opened here in 1991. Next week: Sodas, phosphates, and such Lens on History is a weekly photo feature by Cindy Scott, a volunteer at the History Center of Olmsted County.
