There use to be two or three more floors to this building. It had a mansard roof. Somewhere in the 50's or 60's they took the upper floors off. Not sure why they would do that?

Isn't this the city home of Ella Sharp at the corner of Michigan and First Street?

Photograph of house and Cadillac
This is a beautiful photograph. It could easily be the front cover of a Cadillac brochure from the seventies!

Thanks for your comments, J. Balch. I wondered about this one, too! This photo must date before "the mall" doesn't it? The fender trim on the blue Thunderbird would make it a 1962 model year (Standard Catalog of Ford, 4th Ed./John Gunnell). I'm guessing the year to be 1962 or '63.
