Another example of this apparently common style of commercial building in the Delta, with its familiar iron supports and step, is in the remains of this building in downtown Merigold. Assuming it was constructed close to the other buildings on the street, that would put it around circa 1925. This building is not uniquely identified by name, and the writing is difficult to make out. “Hocker” is the best I can make out on the first part of the faded sign.
These iron steps will probably be around a lot longer than anything else here. Sort of reminds you of arms holding up the temple walls.
