A record of original bits of Milwaukee's Germanic architectural flavor
The Meinecke Building on E. Wells Street (across from the Pabst Theater) was built 1891/1892 as pictured, but lost its original Germanic decorative features. This may have been done with repairs and renovation due to a fire: the building gained a full 6th floor and a more standard and sedate Classical style (according to local historian Y. Marti).
