“On the corner of Hogan and Church St. was the Harry James Insurance Building.  Then it became a bookstore and now a printing Co.”  LS

Both the Harry James Insurance Building and the Jones Brothers Furniture building are still standing.  Now both appear to be empty except a sandwich shop in the West Church Street corner of the old insurance building.  An interesting aspect of many of the downtown Jacksonville photographs that Loyd Sandgren took is how open and sun lit the street views look. Today there are more a few more tall buildings blocking the sunlight and the contemporary views along Hogan Street are more constricted with the elevated Skyway tracks intruding on the space and casting shadows on much of the street.
