Guthery Apartments.  UTM:  17 514746E 3898372N  Erected in the 1920s and substantially damaged by fire in the late 1930s, the Guthery Apartments is the sole surviving example on Tryon St. of an early twentieth century apartment building.  Structures of this type were once common on this major thoroughfare, but they increasingly gave way to commercial and office buildings as the process of suburbanization intensified by mid-century.  Stylistically, the building is Classical Revival, thereby reflective of the conservative architectural tastes that were predominant during that decade.
