This three-story structure was built to replace the landmark Horton's Hall, which was partially destroyed by fire. The building was designed for five storerooms on the first floor, and thirty offices on the upper floors. The San Diego Normal School, now San Diego State University, once leased space on the upper floors. In 1920, the Ratner Cap Manufacturing Company, the fifth largest operation of its kind in the U.S. and first on the West Coast, moved in. Ratner's later bought the copyrights to the Hang Ten trade name and footprint design.
