The Ferd Levi Building

Illustration from the 1893 Worlds Fair Edition, Monroe Evening News.

You may not recognize the name of the building listed on the description, but I guarantee you know the building! Most long-time residents still refer to it as the Ferd Levi building, but today, people know it as Cotton Restaurant. Before either one though, it was the J.S. Bloch wholesale liquor store. There is a great blog post about Jacob Bloch to be found here: http://pre-prowhiskeymen.blogspot.com/2015/08/jacob-bloch-and-louisiana-mail-order.html .
