Busy Week in Building Circles

Ogden Standard Examiner, 28 August 1910, page 8

Lyceum Theater and Other Buildings Are Progressing Rapidly

Building in the city during the week has progressed rapidly; buildings that were practically in embryo in the early part of the week today have assumed definite form.   There seems to have been no delays on account of a shortage of workmen or building materials.

. . .

The carpenters are busy placing the roof upon the new business block that is being erected by David Maule on Twenty-fifth street, near Lincoln avenue.   The cornice work has been placed on the front of the building and the building, from a view, has the appearance of having reached the latter end of finishing.   The interior is yet to be built, but the carpenters are making progress and the plaster will be on the walls before the extremely cold weather sets in.   It is a beautiful building, three stories high and designed to be modern in every particular when completed and furnished.

The new Lyceum theater, near the corner of Grant avenue, on Twenty-fifth street, has been built so rapidly during the week that the changes from day to day have been very marked.  The brick walls have been completed and the large girders for the roof have been placed in position and the carpenters are moving along rapidly in the construction of the floors of the balcony and the auditorium.   The roof will be placed upon the structure in the early part of next week, and it is fully expected that the theater will be ready for use near the middle of September.

Nearly all of the buildings along the route of Hudson avenue have been razed to the ground.  All the buildings facing either upon Twenty-fourth or Twenty-fifth streets, except the Tribune building on the former street and the building formerly occupied by the American Tea company on the latter street, and they are fast falling.  By 6 o'clock tonight the walls of these two buildings will practically be torn down and a plain view of the entire width of the avenue between Twenty-four and Twenty-fifth streets may be had.
