Shield Company, Inc. – 1008 Macon Street

 1008 Macon Street, Shield Company, Inc., 1937.  This diminutive Georgian Revival building was constructed in 1937 as offices and display rooms for the Shield Co., Inc., wholesale distributors of furniture and electrical appliances.  Cornelius Savage, president of the company, reportedly designed his own building.  The one-story hollow tile structure is clad in red brick along the front elevation.  The symmetrical facade, with its recessed colonnaded entry, fanlights, and stone balustrade is a handsome composition.  In fair condition, the building is in need of maintenance.
