The Best-Cannon house is an excellent example of a Queen Anne Victorian cottage in Salt Lake City. It was designed by the firm of Monheim, Bird and Proudfoot, architects for the Salt Lake City and County Building, and built in 1893 by W.A. Wright for Elliot M.S. Best and his family. Best, an agent for the Morse Coe Shoe Company, built the west addition in 1897 for a cost of $85 as a dance studio for his daughter. The Bests lived here until 1906 when Angus M. Cannon, Jr., and his wife, Kate Lynch, bought the house.
Out in the Utah desert in the middle of nowhere I stumbled onto this random thing, it kinda looked like a partially built shelter but based on the materials I’m assuming it is some sort of art.

Located in Pine Valley, Utah
I stopped by on July 19th, 2019 – the last day Macy’s was open at this location in Orem, Utah to document it.
It was previously Z.C.M.I. which was later bought out by the company that owns Macy’s.
Another retail closure, another mall anchor gone.
Located at the University Mall, now University Place.
Now called University Place, the University Mall is in Orem, Utah.
