East side of South 3rd Avenue between Jackson and King Streets.

The McGuire Building occupied a lot on the east side of South 3rd Avenue, between Jackson and King Streets. In the late 19th century, this was located in the high-crime Skid Road area, an area populated with rowdy bars, bordellos and gambling dens. The brief partnership of two English-born men, John Parkinson (1861-1935) and Cecil C. Evers, produced the design.

Demolished; the King Street Railroad Station would occupy this space beginning in 1904.
