This Progressive Insurance office was built in 1967. I don't know what the original occupant was but the building housed the Banks Haley Gallery in 1978. It also housed the Albany Museum of Art at some point. [map]

former Lamar Lewis Shoe Store
Athens, GA
This Lamar Lewis Shoe Store opened in 1929. The concrete, relief panel slipcover is from the 1950s or 1960s. Plastic letters spelling out "Lamar Lewis Shoes" were still on top of the panels in 2017. I believe the store closed around then. In 2018, the building was renovated for Tweed Recording. For more, see this website. [map]
