SW 4th & Washington, 1946

It appears to be a bustling lunch hour looking north on SW 4th Avenue at Washington Street in this 1946 image. The Funland Arcade was housed in the 1912 Merchants National Bank/Hibernia Savings Bank building. The next year the building would lose it’s stately bearing and be given the sleek, modern remodel you see today. More on this tomorrow.
