Commercial Building (Adolph Goldman Building)

-A A +A
Adolph Goldman Building
1897. 207 E. Constitution Ave.

Because the two-story building of grocer Adolph Goldman possesses compositional similarities and the same combination of dark red pressed brick and white sandstone as the O'Connor-Proctor Building ( VI2) it is tempting to attribute its design to Paul Helwig of Cuero.

Next door at 205 E. Constitution Avenue is a handsome two-story building of buff brick marked by arched openings on both floors and a molded brick entablature. A block to the west at number 105 is a one-story store-front, marked with the date 1910, that suggests via its red-on-buff brick mixture that Jules Leffland may have been the architect. Around the corner at 110 S. Main Street is the Allnoch Building of 1892.
