Lamar Lewis Shoes - Athens, Georgia

131 East Clayton Street - A simple shoe store in downtown Athens, this facade presents a bold modern pattern. The entire store is almost frozen in time. Glancing in through the glass doors past the display windows, many things appear just as they must have in the 1960's.

Store name inlaid in terrazo at the entrance.

  1. I have a beautiful modern painting done of this facade. Nash Hogan of Brooklyn,NY and Athens, GA is the artist, and I just adore the piece. Ive lived in Athens, GA since 1980, and have always loved this building. If you've been partying, and look up at this building, it can play tricks on your God Bless these long standing Icons to a culture in Athens, GA that is rich with history!
