The small building at 847 S. Broadway was one of two which flanked the Broadway entrance to the Eastern-Columbia Outfitting Co. parking lot. Both buildings were affixed with ornamentation to match the Eastern-Columbia Building, and were demolished sometime after the company went out of business in 1957. Photograph caption dated December 1949 reads, "Eastern-Columbia. Introducing a new wing at Ninth and Broadway." A large sign with an illustration of Santa Claus is perched on top of the building and reads, "Straight to Eastern-Columbia Department Store for Gifts Galore." An additional sign for parking by Walts Auto Parks is visible on the side of the building. Various home furnishings, including lamps and chairs are visible in the display window. A small portion of the south wall of the May Co. building is visible in the top left-hand corner. A Buick Super is parked next to the building.
