2013 Game Links

Has anyone noticed the new sign for Game Links?  Looks pretty nice.
This gaming business is located in the brick building at the southwest corner of South Second street and East Grand River.  When this building was constructed, it was first used as a movie theater, showing silent films and then eventually talkies.    

Many will remember this building as Line's dime store and then the V&S Variety store.  Following is a picture of the building in the early 1900s when it was a Reo dealership:
Note how the front has been changed -- windows and front.  The storefront to its right (west side) is now the eye doctor's location.  The house at the left side (set back slightly) is the Defendorf house that used to stand right at the corner of the block.  One part of that house was moved to 701 East Grand River, a second matching part was moved to just east of the Citizens Bank (soon to be called First Merit), and the doctor's office was relocated to 235 South Collins Street.
