Omar Temple A.A.O.N.M.S. [Missroon House, 40 East Bay Street, ca. 1925-1935]

Description

Two photographs of the Missroon House, taken after the Omar Shrine purchased it (1925) and restoration architects Simons and Lapham converted the house, adding a 3-story section to the north and wrapping brick columned piazzas on the south and east, but before the piazzas were enclosed.
