White & Kirk, Amarillo, Texas

In 1938, White & Kirk opened a new store in a south-western
Art-Deco style in downtown Amarillo.  The company's
advertising sketch did not hint at the elaborate detailing
of the building.

A different advertising sketch is even less
true to the building but does show the adjacent annex.

The small, beautiful store became an affiliate of Sakowitz
in 1969.

  1. I Have some Hats and Hat Boxes from that store, White & Kirk, circa 1930s?

  2. As a high school art student in Plainview I won two awards in the annual Kodak Photography contest in Amarillo. We were told our entries would be at the prestigious Whit and Kirk store. Big deal for a small town resident.
