Who recognizes this view? Hint: it’s between Meridian and Pennsylvania Streets and this is a similar perspective to what you might have gotten at the Hume-Mansur Building

    I recently purchased several floor plans from the Hume Mansur Building at Midland Market. I gave them away as a wedding present.

    They might have some still! I think they were used to track who rented each unit etc…

    Cool!

    Spent many an hour in the Hume-Mansur building as a child because our eye doctor was there. Other than the little diner with the cool booths and conveyor belt to the kitchen on the first floor, it wasn’t all that great inside. Actually pretty dark and dingy. The really neat innards were just down the street in the Banker’s Trust building where my dad’s cousin was a dentist. Beautiful wrought iron railings, open center tower, elevator with the old iron railings. Scary when you’re little, but quite beautiful when I grew old enough to appreciate it.

    Spent quite a few hours there. My mom worked in one of the offices and my eye doctor was also there, although I can’t for the life of me remember his name. We watched the Bicentennial fireworks display from my mom’s office window. As I recall it still had manually operated elevators well into the 70’s. The diner was pretty cool, though.

    Spent a lot of time at this building from 1949 until 1957. I had a bone disease in my hips, and my
    bone doctors were located in this building. Dr. Frank Teague and Dr. Frank McCartney. Lots of
    memories from my childhood.
