^^To me, the Renaissance wouldn't look so bad if one side of the elevator shaft (or whatever that is in the middle)  was taller, giving it a "two-tower" look.

Notice anything "Nashville-ish" about this Roku page that scrolls across my TV?

Looks like the Batman Building along with, from (left to right) the Transamerica Pyramid in SF,  the skyline of Oz, the Chrysler Building in NYC, The Daily Planet Building in Metropolis, and The Avengers Headquarters in... I'm gonna say Avengerburg

Nice! For anyone unaware those 2, 2 storey buildings on the far right were where the parking lot for hard rock is. I was shocked the first time I saw a picture and discovered there were never larger buildings there.

Someone recently commented that the buildings along the west side (left side in photo) were remodeled/refaced when that street was widened in the 1920s. Obviously, the Southern Bell switching building took out a whole block of those classic (taller) buildings farther up the street. But what happened to the building at the immediate left the same building that housed "Cotton Eye Joe" (now Dierks Bentley's?) bar. The pic above shows arches over the windows similar to the arches on the Broadway side of that building. If you look at it from Broadway, it does look as if it was "cut off" at the 2nd Avenue corner. Interesting.

What this photo doesn't show is the nighttime scene when those horse-drawn wagons were rented out for wild bachelorette parties.

Dang.  Power lines obstructing the views in 1897!  Knowing Nashville...we even had those in 1797! :rolleyes:

I hope they never move the Batman building to another city. I love it being  here in Nashville.
