Significance: One of the few remaining large-scale commercial edifices to utilize brick as a primary material after Baltimore's Great Fire of 1904, the Vickers building typifies the simple massing and restrained use of classical ornamentation of the financial and commercial district after the fire. Since 1951, Werner's Restaurant has occupied part of the ground floor and retains much of its Moderne character from that period.
