This small, but elaborate building in Whittier, Minneapolis was built as the Despatch Laundry Co. building in 1929 by architect Louis B. Bershack, who was better known for his apartment buildings. The storefront serves as form of advertising for the business. The building is eye-catching in the residential neighborhood of Whittier, Minneapolis, with its onion dome, pointed arches, patterned brickwork, mosaic tile, and narrow minarets. It was renovated in 1981 and now houses an office space.
