Zembo Mosque

-A A +A
1928–1929, C. Howard Lloyd. 2801 N. 3rd St.

At the northern end of the city is this period spectacular for another of the Shriner groups whose flamboyant designs include the even more spectacular Irem Temple in Wilkes-Barre ( LU31). Here, brilliantly hued tiles in Moorish detail clad the stepped tower that is reminiscent of Morocco.
