Short and Upper Streets, ca. 1898


A number of people recognized last week's #ThrowbackThursday as being at the corner of Lexington's Short and Upper Streets. Cropped from the original picture were St. Paul's Catholic Church and Cheapside, as I figured those made for too easy of clues.

Still, many recognized the long gone parapet atop the extant Northern Bank Building (home of Parlay Social).

Also remaining on the blog between Market and Upper is the old First National Bank building with its iconic arched entryway at 215 West Short.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's #Throwback Thursday!
