Looking South from East Monroe Street at the back of the 1902 Duval County Courthouse building with the it’s 1914 addition to the right. North Market Street runs down the left side of the photograph. On the right side of the photograph appear to be residential structures that would be behind the Morocco Temple. The building jutting into the parking lot on the left is the still standing Burbridge Realty Co. building which fronts East Adams Street. The original courthouse building with the cupola was demolished when the 1958 Duval County Courthouse on East Bay Street was opened. The 1914 addition remains standing with additional wings added along East Forsyth Street to make up the Claude Yates Building which houses city offices. A parking garage on East Adams Street now covers the back of the Yates Building.
