Main Street
[p.172]The east side of Main Street between 200 and 300 South streets, April 21, 1940. The Woolworth Building, designed by Walter Ware, was a noteworthy example of Moderne architecture in Salt Lake City. When plans were underway for the Utah One Center, the Utah Savings and Trust Building on the right stood alone for a time before meeting the same fate as the other buildings in this photograph. (Neg. 31537.)

Deseret Mortuary
[p.173]Deseret Mortuary, May 22, 1940. This building on 700 South between State and Main streets was built in 1891 as a residence for Elijah Weiler, who had come to Utah in 1847. By the time Shipler took this photograph, it had been used as a funeral home for many years and had undergone multiple additions. The mortuary is still in business, and despite further remodeling, the building remains identifiable with its unusual collection of towers. (Neg. 31664.)

Crystal Palace Market
[p.174]Crystal Palace Market on South Temple and 200 East, August 20, 1940. This exuberant building and the former auto dealership to the left were among the best examples of Art Deco style architecture in the city. They were eventually incorporated into a more modern glass building for the Makoff Store. The building now houses an investment bank. (Neg. 32039.)
