Commercial Block

-A A +A
c. 1870. Northeast corner of High and Broadway streets, Toledo

As with numerous mid-century Italianate buildings, the strong visual character of this three-story brick structure is created by its cornice and the pronounced lintel hoods over the round-headed windows. Paired arched windows are found on the first floor, and the entrances were articulated by hooded lintels with semi-circular transom windows below. Some changes have been made at the first-floor level, but the upper facade appears to be untouched.
