Note:
W. E. Glen had a contract to build a 3-story, pressed brick store and office building for R. I. Shrier from McMillen's plans (Manufacturers' Record, Feb. 9, 1905). This may be Isaac Shrier, a clothier who according to Tony Wrenn, in Wilmington, North Carolina: An Architectural and Historical Portrait (1984), once had his shop at 26 Market St. The Wilmington Star reported on Nov. 27, 1904, "I. Shrier will erect a new building soon, 3 stories high, 36 feet on N. Front, back into the block 100 feet. The style of architecture will be Italian Renaissance, and the material will be a plain and moulded red press brick with brown stone trimmings."
