In this drawing the architect W.C. Root renders a warehouse for W.J. Smith, ESQ in a popular style with architects at the time. The first floor of the building has large windows in threes punctuated with entry doors. The windows continue in pairs to the second and third stories with layered trapezoidal keystones over each. The fourth-floor windows break the pattern with a series of lunette-shaped archways over each window series. The windows get smaller with the subsequent fifth and sixth floors, quickening the pace of the windows with each.
