Where is Edward?

Where is this Edward engraving in Hoboken?

Many older buildings in Hoboken have “names.”

There has to be some history behind why some older buildings have names engraved on them, but I’m certain I wasn’t even born yet when this convention began, so I cannot say with any true authenticity based on real experience. But my best guess it was imported here from other cultures, most likely in England or Europe somewhere. If anyone has first-hand knowledge about this – please feel free to share.

Anyway, today’s Hoboken “Where is this?” photo quiz pertains to this “Edward” engraving somewhere in town. Are you attentive enough to recall where it is?

About Hoboken411 “Where is this?”
The Where is this? feature is part of the ongoing Hoboken Photo of the Day section on Hoboken411.com.

We try and find interesting or obscure visuals – and challenge readers attention spans by asking them if they can recall where it is located in Hoboken.

Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.

We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.

I believe it’s on one of those 5 story walk ups on the east side of 11th & Washington Street.

My apology—-should have used the term “sad” history rather than bad.

Funny, I just noticed a building yesterday “named” EL DORADO and was curious of the origin.

Unfortunately, the Eldorado has a very bad history. The building on 13th Street was the subject of a disastrous fire in the 1970’s where many people lost their lives.[quote comment=”220272″]Funny, I just noticed a building yesterday “named” EL DORADO and was curious of the origin.[/quote]

Not sure Joey if it’s a condo building in itself, but the the buildings around it are all a part of an Applied Housing complex almost up to the Madison Bar on 14th.[quote comment=”220321″]geee wonder what the reason or the cause of that fiasco? are there condos there at this time..chitttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt[/quote]

CORRECTION FOR JOEY AND READERS:
Although it was indeed the Eldorado that had it’s horrific fire, the address I used to describe it’s location was incorrect. The building is actually located on the corner of 12th and Washington Street and could possibly have the address of 1200 although it’s entrance is located on the side street of 12th. The building in NOT part of the Applied Company complex which runs from 1300 to possible 1308. Sorry about the misinformation.[quote comment=”220322″]Not sure Joey if it’s a condo building in itself, but the the buildings around it are all a part of an Applied Housing complex almost up to the Madison Bar on 14th.[/quote]
