SW 6th Ave & Washington, 1946

This is a nicely detailed photo from 1946 looking north on SW 6th Avenue from Washington Street. Lots of terrific signage in this shot, including the highway directional signs. The only thing left standing today is that tiny sliver of a building seen to the far left edge.

  1. The building on the SE corner of 6th and stark abuts the current Bank of the West building and has some architectural similarities. Could it have been an extension of the bank?
