Waldron Block:  Architectural Detail

Its arched fenestration, segregated into groups by piers protruding from the wall plane, and rock-faced masonry used on ground story facades suggest that this building emulated the Richardsonian Romanesque Style.

A three-story rounded bay and a three-centered arch surrounded with a rock-faced masonry are at the southeast corner of the building.
Along the 12th Street facade a similar portal set off by sandstone piers gives access to upper stories. Above the ground story, brick piers frame multi-storied groups of two and three bays and extend, unbroken, slightly above the roof line where, no doubt, further cornice embellishment, (as it once existed on the original 1891 building) was planned but never completed.
