Union Buildings

Another fine building — the tallest in Memphis featuring wonderful Art Deco designs.

The website for Historic-Memphis.com says:

The 14 story Farnsworth Building at Main and Union is a notable Art Deco mid-rise co-designed by William Van Powell in 1927. Powell went on to design Fairview Junior High – another Art Deco masterpiece. Decorative detailing will become the signature of Powell’s work. In 1938 a ladies clothing store named "The Three Sisters" moved here and stayed a long time. This building became known as the Three Sisters Building. Much later the Business Journal took over the building and added their sign on top. They have since moved to Brinkley Plaza but their sign has remained. The building was added to the National Register in 1983.
