314 Atlantic Avenue

c. 1920

In the 1930s and 40s, this Art Deco gem housed an office and showroom for the National Cash Register Association. The structure has many fine Art Deco details, such as stylized, fluted pilasters capped with terra-cotta medallions, and doors and windows inlaid with branch-like mullion patterns. Interestingly, another similar business operated on the avenue to the east. A less remarkable building than 314, 388 Atlantic Avenue was once the home of the Standard Johnson Company, producer of electric coin counting machines.
