Dickey and Reed, Architects
— 1906 —Charles Dickey, whose firm designed the Claremont Hotel and who practiced architecture extensively in California and Hawaii, designed this building with two residential floors above commercial storefronts. From 1921 to 1935 the ground floor was occupied by Donogh Drygoods, one of Berkeley's leading downtown retailers and a competitor of Hink's department store one block to the north. The store was a "daylight store," lighted by windows, skylights, and french doors that opened onto a rear garden. Mrs. Donogh, one of the first women graduates of M.I.T., introduced a popular "Basement Grocerteria" - the first of its kind in the state.
