Despite the Great Depression, Spokane was still growing and the young city was building to the north, up the corridors of Monroe, Washington, Howard and Division. With the county courthouse nearby, offices for attorneys, space for restaurants and storefronts for bail bondsmen were in demand. Over the years, the few wooden buildings have been replaced with brick. Today, North Monroe Street is known for antiques, both funky and functional. Stores are clustered between Broadway and the bridge, but they are sprinkled all the way to Garland.
