John D. Briggs, architect; J. T. Salmon, builder
Durham, Durham County
The Manufacturers' Record reported in 1911 that Liggett and Myers (successor to ATC after a corporate breakup) had let a contract to builder J. T. Salmon for a 300 by 119 foot brick building of "mill construction for $30,000, based on plans by John D. Briggs of Raleigh." (It is not clear what building this citation referred to. The Manufacturers' Record said the building was to be called O'Brien, but the O'Brien Building of 1898 is a different building. The reference might be to a structure shown on the 1913 Sanborn Insurance Map as "(O'Brien) Cobb Annex."
