It's amazing to think of some of these structures as the center of town in 1904.

This is the 100 block of East Mountain Avenue in Fort Collins. We know is as the home of Beaujo's, but that distinction won't last for long, as Beaujo's is moving to another location whose history we've chronicled in another Then & Now post.

Let's look at this landmark in a couple great photos through the years supplied by the Fort Collins Local History Archive.

Here's what the building looked like back in 1902. This was when they were still pulling rock for the foundations from what is now Horsetooth Reservoir.
