Milwaukee - Downtown

We drove by 5th & Cherry today, to see if the Obermann brewery empty lot had any activity. Doesn't seem to be anything but empty weeds there. Next we drove a block away and snapped a photo of the old EL Husting building. EL stands for Eugene Louis. The brewery opened in the 1870s if I remember, although I was very young. It's a couple of blocks away from the Brewery Credit Union, and a few more away from Pabst. The building is occupied by an advertising agency today.
