Notes
Survey number HABS OH-2123
Significance: The design and detailing of the Peerless Motor Company Building suggests a derivation from the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School architects. More specifically, the exterior main entrance piers with their spheriod terminations somewhat resemble a similar motif employed by Wright in his Larkin Building (1904) in Buffalo, New York. Certain design elements and details also suggest a knowledge of the work of J. M. Olbrich and the Viennese Sezession, which was the Austrian development of the Art Nouveau movement.
