Additional Information:Ornate brickwork at the cornice, stone banding and "Scatter Glass" mosaic work in the blind arches spanning the second story windows are of architectural interest in this three-bay, two-story red brick commercial building. While there are some hints of Beaux Arts Classicissim in the detailing, the extensive remodeling of the store front has seriously compromised the original architectural integrity of this building. Because of its second level detailing, however, it is contributive to the architectural significance of the District.
