About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

I'm still looking for the Tri-State reference.

What's There Today

The Weber Grill is in Claypool Court, which is in about the same location as the Claypool Hotel in the left of the DPC picture. The skinny building on the right is now the site of The Conrad, which I watched go up from excavation to topping out out windows of the Lilly Arts Garden (above the intersection) or the Circle Center Mall food court.

Weber Grill

Just a point of correction: The Weber Grill is a restaurant. The present day area is a mixed hotel/shopping/dining complex known as Circle Centre Mall. The ever so ugly 'Arts Garden' is that spaceship-like thing that appears to have landed over the intersection.

Weber Site

Not a single recognizable thing in the present day Street View but I wonder if Weber Drug Store has any connection to Weber Grill, which seems to have offices in the same location:

Without a headache

Blots out all your troubles.
