Sipes Grocery / Camille's, 1948
1342 East 15th Street
This was one of several Sipes stores in Tulsa. I don't have the date it was built but this photograph was taken in 1948. Although the Sipes stores were bought by Hale-Halsell in 1955, they continued to operate under the Sipes name for a number of years. The design is clearly along the lines of the Streamline Modern Art Deco. (photo courtesy of the Beryl Ford Collection/Rotary Club of Tulsa, Tulsa City-County Library and Tulsa Historical Society)
The Remodeled building is now one of the 6 Tulsa locations for Camille's Sidewalk Cafe.
The store is large enough to house more than a coffee and sandwich shop. The remodeled structure makes up the Cherry Street Market and is looking for additional tenants.
