This shot really shows the growth of the downtown area well.  Really like this one.  One day, we'll get a really high resolution shot from this angle that will be money.  I wish I had photoshop skills to add in as many of the pending projects as possible.

Found these old postcards of Church Street from 1914.  the first shows the 45 degree corner of the Cain-Sloan Building at far right. On the left we see the original location of the Princess Theatre before it moved a block further east.  The indenture in the center is not a street, but the front lawn of the McKendree Methodist Church.  The present facade  though was added towards Church Street decades later.  One thing I have not been able to find is the identity of the handsome brick 10 story tower at the far left seen in full on the second card.  It was torn down perhaps for the new  Cain-Sloan in the 60s?  It now is the site of the 505 tower.  Anyone know?  Here is a night view from around 15 years later.

The beautiful 6-story building on the far left was the Jackson Building. It was demolished prior to 1957 for the old Cain-Sloan Department Store.
