CreatorMelville & Co.
DescriptionFrom text: "Strauss, Yondorf & Rose, Wholesale Clothiers. They occupy a handsome structure on the corner of Market and Quincy streets, ten stories and basement, being the first actual fire-proof building in the city erected and used for commercial purposes.... [t]he ninth and tenth stories are used for sample rooms, thus securing on these floors at all times of day an unobstructed natural light. Buyers of textile fabrics of delicate shades of color will know how to appreciate this in preference to the most approved artificial lights. This tenth story sample room is a feature of the establishment, having a vaulted ceiling sixteen feet high, and beautifully decorated and fitted up."
