The H. & S. Pogue Company, Cincinnati, Ohio


Pogue's 1916 building on the corner of 4th and Race Streets in Cincinnati.  The 3 smaller buildings to the east on 4th Street were occupied by Pogue's as well.


Pogue's eventually occupied part of the Carew Tower complex at 5th and Race Streets.  Pogue's 4th Street store is visible next to the Art-Deco structure of the Carew Tower, which also housed the beautiful Netherland Plaza Hotel.


The Arcade of the Carew Tower, occupied by Pogue's in later years, but originally home to Mabley & Carew, a competitor who left the complex when Rollman's Department Store went out of business. The Rollman's site became Mabley's flagship, allowing Pogue's to expand into this space.


A latter day aerial view of Cincinnati clearly shows the H. & S. Pogue Co. store below the Netherland Plaza and Carew Tower.  The 1916 building, and older parts of the store have been unified by a modernized ground floor, emblazoned with the distinctive Pogue's logo barely visible.  Interestingly, competitors McAlpin's (across 4th Street) and Mabley & Carew (the vertically-accened building north of the Carew Tower on Fountain Square) are also visible.  Shillito's, the other of Cincinnati's department stores was located further north, and is visible to the left of the Carew Tower's top.

The Halle Brothers Co., Cleveland, Ohio



Halle's in Cleveland was most identified by its gleaming
white terra-cotta building at the eastern end of Euclid
Avenue. It was built in 1910, and doubled in size by 1913

The Euclid Avenue Building backed up to
Huron Road (right). Halle's expanded across
the road in 1927 (left)

The so-called Prospect Building was
originally used for the Store for Men
and home furnishings. In the 1950s
Halle's consolidated all operations
into the Euclid Building.

The trapezoidal shape of the Prospect Building
allowed it to front on Prospect Avenue as well.
When the store consolidated, the Prospect
Building became a parking deck and warehouse.

In 1949, Halle's added a west wing along
Huron Road to the Euclid Building.

An aerial view shows the rear of the wedge-
shaped Euclid Building (with oriel windows)
and the Prospect Building across Huron Road.
