Temple Opera Block, 201-205 Superior Street (corner of 2nd Ave), built in 1889. The 201 address, at the leftmost corner of the building, was home to the Orpheum Café coffeehouse in the mid-1980s. For some years afterward it was the Browser's N'Etc Cafe. Sometime in the 2000s, the adjacent computer store took over the space, but as of 2018 had relocated, leaving that part of the building vacant. Top photo shows the building in the 1890s. Next image down shows it in 2017, and the blow-up below it zooms in on the 201 doorway. Bottom photo (undated) shows the configuration when the the internet cafe was still in operation. Hüsker Dü played the Orpheum on 18 Jan 1985.
