Dinks Parrish Laundry
Dinks Parrish Laundry, 3112/3124 Olive Street, is one of the city's greatest terra cotta confections, a Gothic composition festooned with Moorish and other elements. Dating from 1916, the building has had various addtions tacked on over the years, but the original portion is by architect William Levy, with the amazing terra cotta facade manufactured by the omnipresent Winkle Terra Cotta Company in the 1920s.
After 1943, it housed Morgan Linen Supply Inc. for many years, before going dark some time prior to 2003. It was renovated in the mid-2000s by Integration Development as the Linen Lofts, and now houses a handful of apartments as well as a restaurant and jazz club.
