This modest building was built in 1950, when construction was recovering after World War II. It is of concrete construction with very large display windows and Roman brick trim, typical of the 1950s. It originally housed office and showrooms for two business machine companies, Diebold and Elliott Addressing Machine. These were typical of the types of businesses that located in Belltown at the time so that they could be close to their customers in downtown office buildings. Much of the facade has been covered with brightly-painted plywood.
