General Mills Building - 1940s

Buffalo has few industrial buildings in the International Style of architecture, which manifested itself in the 1920's and 1930's. Like its endangered sister building, the A.M.& A's store on Main Street, the General Mills building shows the horizontal bands of windows and geometric shape characteristic of the International Style. The building is still intact and used in 2004.

Look here for more information on the A. M. & A's building by Heritage Magazine editor John H. Conlin. The former department store, located at 377-289 Main, is likley doomed to demolition.
