The buildings housing the G. & W. Sandwich Shop, Metro Cafe and Cole Theatre Supply Company, 15th & Farnam Streets, Omaha, 1928. Nathaniel L. Dewell, photographer. Notice that the Paxton Hotel is just beginning construction! The building with the arched window is known today as the Kraft building; there is a restaurant on the main level, apartments above and a photography studio. The Farnam Theater was on the upper levels in 1917.
