The delicate, Renaissance-inspired bas-reliefs in terra cotta which adorn the Breslin Building are a hallmark of the work of one of Louisville's major architectural firms of the 1920s, Joseph & Joseph. The structure is one of several important commercial buildings to remain on Broadway, the city's most important commercial hub of this period.
