Bristol, CT
The Lorraine Building appears to be from the 1930s. [map]

Dixwell Playhouse & Drug Store [gone]
Hamden, CT
The Dixwell Playhouse and former drug store were supposedly built in 1920. That sounds early - my guess would be 1930s. The Playhouse was used as a movie theatre and later a bowling alley. The building was demolished in 2016. For more, see this website.

French Italian Importing Company
Hamden, CT
The French Italian Importing Company is located about ten blocks north of the Dixwell Playhouse. The similar styles look like the buildings were probably designed by the same architect and built around the same time. [map]
