Today's painting is of the JFG Coffee Building with the Fire Street loft building along Jackson Avenue. JFG coffee was roasted and delivered out of this building from 1926 until just a few years ago. The building is now owned by Dewhirst Properties and is being redesigned into modern apartments. The Fire Street Loft building also a Dewhirst Property, underwent a design change several years ago and now is home to many downtown residents. Once a dark avenue full of old warehouses and factories is now full of life again.
