Raleigh Calling, Installment Three: ‘More than just a Pretty Facade’

Welcome to another installment of our cell phone photo series, “Raleigh Calling.” See if you can guess which building in the heart of downtown Raleigh is depicted in the slightly distorted image shown above as well as answer a bit of trivia. As always, winners will be rewarded for correct answers.

If you are among the first three people to correctly identify this building and answer one of the following questions you will receive a matted print of this beautiful photo.

– What famous 19th century historical Raleigh map does this building appear on?
– What popular restaurant currently occupies the ground floor?
– What other uses has this building seen other than a furniture store?

Good luck!
