Note:

The building won an AIA award design award for 1927. Macklin’s creative mastery of the Georgian Revival mode in proportions and detail as applied to a modern building function is well represented in the 3-story brick building that combines themes from Philadelphia’s Independence and Congress Halls. Within the Flemish bond brick walls is a sturdy steel frame to carry the heavy newspaper presses.
