Railroad yard building
Looks to be the railroad building that burned down around the mid 70's. It was located on page ave south of the railroad tracks behind now the Blue Moon Resturant (the old junction resturant or papa ray's).

Not Jackson Street but Michigan Avenue looking west from across the street of the old Capitol Theater. Note the City Bank & Trust Building on the south side and the Reynolds, Building, Consumer's Power and Hotel Hayes (front to rear) on the north side. At least the late 60s with the Thuderbird in front of the Downtown NBJ office.

I believe this was located on Jefferson Road (north side) near Hewitt Road. I remember my parents going here to vote when I was very young.
