Also see . . . Martin and Morrison Block, Minneapolis. Soon after entrepreneur John Martin began construction of his uniform, four-bay building in spring 1858, fellow Vermont native Francis (Frank) Morrison announced he would build three more bays next door. The Morrison building explicitly emulated the Martin block’s design, a classical façade of native Platteville limestone. (Submitted on August 31, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
