Phoenix Cleaners, 1947


125 East 18th Street


Built in 1947, this white, two-story, brick building features a curved front corner and a smooth black metal canopy extending across the front facade and around the corner. Various window sizes adorn the upper level which is bordered above and beneath by bands of projected brick courses. An unusual curved-front window bay composed of fitted, flat-glazed frames is bordered by glass block "sidelites." (Excerpted from Tulsa Preservation Committee)

  3. The curved corner feature was a popular design element in the 40's and early 50's. It could be found in a lot of automobile dealerships.
    I seem to recall seeing this building before it was painted. It's still a very neat looking structure.
