The Morrissey Building
This abandoned building, The Morrissey, once consisted of Bosler's Fireproof Garage, Kentucky Typewriter, and some other spot that looks to have been a deli at one time. It's located at 429 S. 3rd Street in downtown Louisville and is rumored to be earmarked for destruction in the near future.
I saw the door open yesterday and hoped that someone was in there that I could talk to about the possibility of leasing the place, and thus save it from being demolished. No one was around, alas.
The Falls City Theatre Equipment Co. building, also empty, is right next door. See more images of both buildings on Deatonstreet's flickr.
