“This picture shows the parking lot after they tore down the old hotel.  Note on right, they were building the Atlantic Bank Building.  Look at all the people on the streets, it isn’t like that today.”  LS

Looking Northbound up Hogan Street at the intersection with Forsyth Street around 1950.  The Hotel George Washington stands in the upper left of the photograph.  The Gilbert Hotel and Hotel Windsor can be seen further up Hogan Street.  The Exchange Building in the center of the photograph was built in 1930 and still stands on West Adams Street, minus the sign on top.  Most of the other buildings in this photograph are now gone.  Another view of the East side of Hogan street from about the same period can be seen here.
