Cambier Brothers Garage Building

-A A +A
1919, Beuttler and Arnold. 103 3rd St.

This single-story brick garage building is part pure industrial, part Prairie-style, and part Beaux-Arts. A suggestion of the Prairie style lies in the inverted triangular ornament projecting above the parapet of the roof, while an entrance surmounted by a classical pediment leads into the showroom of the building. In front of the building is a tile-roofed canopy that provides shelter for the pump area.
