In 1929, Adolph Schleicher built his new Samson Tire and Rubber Company factory at the cost of 8 million dollars. The complex was designed by the firm of Morgans, Walls, and Clement, who are also responsible for The Mayan
and El Capitan Theatres
. They designed this industrial building after the Babylonian King Sargon II's 23 acre Assyrian palace.
Today, according to proper capitalist logic, what remains of the factory has been incorporate in Citadel Outlet stores. Evidently Assysrian statues are good inspiration for maintaining your shopping stamina.
