“This is what the old Jones Business College looked like in 1947.  Note the sign on top of the building, rates for the hotel started at $1.50.  This is looking North on Hogan St. from Bay Street.  The background was the Seminole Hotel.”  LS

The Hotel Seminole is the largest building in the frame and sat on the corner of Forsyth and Hogan Streets.  Designed by Henry Klutho, it opened for business in 1910 and operated until 1967.  It was finally demolished in 1974.  The Bank of America tower now occupies the block of downtown Jacksonville seen in this photograph.
