These twin commercial properties extend the Westcott commercial district onto Harvard Place (much later, the house across the street had a zoning change and was transformed into an art gallery and café). Though the joined structure is really just a simple brick shed building, the attractive matching ship fronts once gave a bit of elegance and enhanced the streetscape. If the facade had been restored in the recent remodeling, it would have greatly improved the appearance of this corner of the commercial district.

In the 1980s and 1990s these stores were occupied by the Westcott Video (#111) and the Syracuse Auto Body shop (#115). They now house Westcott Liquor and Wines and Go Chix.
