Key West Real Estate Trivia No. 3 - Updated

Where is this?

Come back tomorrow for the answer.
 
I took this photo in 1986 or 1987.
 
As an aside HARC does not allow owners in Old Town to add dormers to their homes. This property was built prior to 1889 with the dormers.
 
The answer is 600 Fleming Street, Key West. It has been many things over the years including...
 

The site of Fausto's Grocery and a survivor of the October 1944 hurricane.
A greeting place when our boys returned from saving the world.
 

The Q Rooms in 1987 when the building was purchased for $270,000. It was renovated and became The Marquesa Hotel and Mira - the first restaurant late re-named Cafe Marquesa.

Good morning Gary. What I see inn your phot is a blank canvas of opportunity. And I expect that the Historian of Key West real estate has the story and more photos in his shoebox! Enjoy your day!

Hello Gary - my proficiency in everyday trivia is tested on a regular basis and I don't fare too well.  I am sure when it comes to Key West minutiae it will be an even poorer showing.  I anticipate seeing the rest of the story tomorrow.
