Below is the same view from July of 2016.

Spirella

There's enough about Spirella to keep one busy for many days at Ivy Leaf's corset site.

The girl upstairs

Does she work at the corset shop or the Christian Science reading room?

Between a rock and a hard place

The young lady is between Christian Science and Spirella Corsets. No wonder she seems hesitant.

Still looks the same in 2011

Minus the well dressed people. Even the hand painted window signs remain. Although there is a skylight, you still get a claustrophobic feeling while walking around in there due to the narrowness of the arcade.

Peek-a-boo

The young lady on the right is peeking out of the entryway at the Photographer, while the young man across the way is peeking at her!

Peekaboo

Wonder if the woman hiding upstairs right was wanted by the police, long lost husband or relatives owed money?

Discreet

The young lady at the right on the upper level doesn't want to be in the picture; too late to tell her that she is, I suppose! I get the feeling there were shops on the lower level and offices on the upper level. A wonderful space; like the jaunty hat on the fellow, lower level, in the foreground, just ahead of the three ladies.
