"10. 110 E. Broadway, Chancellor and Lee (1909), ca. 1909.
A two-story brick two-part commercial block with a flat roof. This building is similar to the larger building to its east (112-116 E. Broadway) and appears to have been built at the same time. The upper façade is detailed like the one on the east, with a stepped brick cornice and rock-faced brick window hoods. The segmental arched window openings are filled with newer multi-light sashes. The storefront opening is intact, and topped with an early or original lintel which has the same type of ornamental medallions used on the building to the east. The metal-framed storefront infill is several decades old. The transom area is covered with flat panels and the lower section has a central door flanked by open display windows and short flat bulkheads. A low sloped canopy of curved wooden slats runs along the top of the display windows; it appears to be the same age as the storefront infill. A modern sign projects from the wall above the storefront. [c]" ~ NRHP Nomination Form
