E.A. Spalding, Contractor 1888Robert Agers constructed this building to manufacture "the very best soda water" for customers throughout California. The recessed storefronts, second-floor oriel windows, and high false front are all largely unchanged from a 1904 expansion. The building evokes Berkeley's early small-town character when Telegraph Avenue was lined with wood frame houses and small shops.
