Building memories

This photograph of the Black Building was submitted by Norman Scott, who shares these memories of the structure: "The Black Building has been a part of the Fargo skyline for almost 80 years. When I was a youngster, it was the tallest building in town. At one time, it was also the tallest building in the state. A couple of years ago, the front of the building was refurbished to the way I remember it as a child."

Sears was in this building before moving to West Acres. It was always fun to go shopping here with our family.

Although it is no longer the tallest building in town, I still picture it as the skyscraper I remember from long ago.
