Sydnor and Hundley Furniture Store

-A A +A
1911, Charles K. Bryant. 700 E. Grace St.

This is one of the first large commercial structures erected on the formerly residential street. The building's wide window bays, made possible by structural steel, and the straightforward treatment of the elevations, which generally lack ornament except at the cornice, betray the influence of the Chicago Commercial Style.
