Miller and Rhoads Buildings

-A A +A
1913, Charles M. Robinson. 315–317 and 319–323 W. Broad St.

Robinson, primarily known for his schools, designed these two buildings, constructed side by side for the large Richmond-based department store. The Chicago School influence is evident in 319–323, with its expansive windows, riveted spandrel panels, and plain cornice broken by sleek paired brackets. Robinson initially practiced architecture in Pennsylvania and, perhaps as a result, was open to progressive designs from the Midwest.
