Decker-Patrick Building (1913-1914, Headlund & Kent)

Patrick Dry Goods Company

This building has housed the same business since its constrction in 1914. The Decker-Patrick Company, which advertised itself as “Wholesale dealers in dry goods, notions, and men’s and women’s furnishings,” later changed its name to the Patrick Dry Goods Company. This name still appears on the building today. The Patrick Dry Goods Company Building is an attractive example of late Commercial style architecture. The heavy projecting cornice, variety of window types, recessed central window pays, and sharp contrast between the white trim and red brick give the building’s facade an active appearance.

Update, the name is finally off the building. A little sad. It’s now J. Wong’s Asian Bistro and the “Patrick Lofts” apartments.

This is located at 163 West on 200 South in Salt Lake City, Utah
