Holy Cow! The old terracotta was beautiful. Image posted via Flickr's "Share on Blogger" feature. Thanks to Uptown Update for first locating this photographer.

This building stood on Broadway and Sunnyside. This McJunkin arch stood smack dab in the middle of the intersection between Target and Aldi. You can spot it in the old DOT photos in the background of a shot at Sheridan and Sunnyside, looking west on Sunnyside.
