Weston Building

The four-story Weston Building stood on the west side of Canal St., just north of Sweet's Hotel, which is at the far left of the photo. A sign indicates that the Board of Trade, later the Chamber of Commerce, is housed in the building. In late November of 1908, a new organization, The Guild, a group of six Grand Rapids furniture companies, signed a five-year lease for quarters to accommodate their club rooms on the second floor of the Weston Building.
