Leonard L. Broida (1901-1977) trained as an architect at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Architecture Class of 1923, and while studying in Europe for one year.
It was not long before he opened an architectural firm with Maurice G. Uslan.
Leonard’s designs were definitely influenced by his time abroad, as he describes in this interview that goes along with the image at the top of this post:
Leonard took his architect’s vision of modern, timeless beauty, and translated it into economical buildings to grace our city streets for many years.
