On the Ritz (page 4):"...The Ritz Building, a combination of at least three Victorian structures taking up almost half-a-block at the corner of Third and F Streets, has been home to a bar or restaurant throughout its his- tory. Remodeled in the Art Moderne style in 1946, the Ritz is recognized today as a wonderful example of the post–World War II vigor that sought to replace the old with the new, with its stucco façade, its emphasis on horizontal lines, and its distinctive use of neon. Owners Daniel and Jayne Ollivier take great pride in their restoration of 1978 and their stewardship of this sophisticated building." (Submitted on November 6, 2012.)
