Remodeling and Bricks

I previously knew this as a film developing store (Timeless Photos?). Los Beto's has a new location and the site is being remodeled. The bricks and smokestack might offer clues as to what businesses used to be at this site?

Arrowleaf balsamroot, Balsamorhiza sagittata (Pursh Nutt.), dots the Boise Foothills each spring. The flower faces follow the sun. The whole plant is yummy for wildlife. Natives used it for food and medicine.
