1951 ... Cherokee Street, Day After the Masonic Temple Fire
From the C.W. Witbeck Collection, MDAH Archives
I confused some folks with these shots. The fire happened on the other side of the street, down the block, across from the Post Office. I posted these photos as a kind of snapshot of the businesses that were occupying certain buildings at the time.
In time, I hope to post a "photo essay" of the Masonic fire as it happened. Stay tuned.
