Insurance Building

Address: 114 N. Broadway Ave.

View: Northeast

Image Date: before 1930

Architect: Layton, Smith and Hawk (Griffith 61)

Built: 1910 (Griffith 53)

"Situated on the east side of the street at 114 North Broadway was the Insurance Building. Prior to its actual construction, various architectural firms drew plans for a building of similar size for this same space and postcards with these conceptions, labeled the Norton Building or the Bass and Harbour Building, still exist. Instead, the Insurance Building was constructed about 1910. The Oklahoma Gas & Electric Co. had offices to the south and in a short time the need for additional space led the company to extend its occupancy to the Insurance Building. People still recall the enormous electric sign on the roof with its hundreds of light bulbs spelling out 'Light & Power.' The building has been destroyed, and today its former site is part of the Santa Fe Plaza and Liberty Bank complex." (Edwards and Ottaway, Vanished Splendor 47)
