Don't Be Bashful

Just behind the Southern Building at right center is the Shoreham Hotel.

The National Garage at far left was, in an earlier incarnation, the slightly cheesy Halls of the Ancients. By 1923, it had morphed again into the Auto Mart, as seen in a reverse-angle photo taken from the Real Estate Trust Building.
