Below is the same view from July of 2016.

Before removal of "The Hump"

This was before Grant's Hill was removed in 1912. What once was a slight rise was excavated, making most of downtown flat.

There's nobody doing any business, although the clock says 1.

Too bad the Curb isn't there anymore. Looks like it could have been a nice place for a tall cool one.
