    Does Jacksonville resemble a Midewestern city:? Part II

    Downtown street scenes


    Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (1907)


    Greenleaf & Crosby Building (1927)


    The Hildebrandt Building (1926) now overshadowed by the BellSouth Tower


    St. Johns Epicsopal Cathedral (1903)


    West Adams Street


    Federal Courthouse Plaza


    Adam's Mark Hotel


    From left to right, The Florida Life (1911) , Florida Bank (1902), & the Bisbee (1908) Buildings await their restorations, which will hopefully begin this spring. The two taller buildings were designed by Henry Klutho, Jacksonville's most influential turn of the century architect. Because of him, Jacksonville is home to the largest collection of "Prairie Styled Architecture" outside of the Midwest. BTW, the "Prairie School Movement" was led by Frank Llyod Wright and Louis Sullivan in the early 1900's.


    The Western Union Telegragh Building (1931) is now the ne Museum of Modern Art


    construction on both sides of Duval St.


    A new infill housing development of Church St.


    the former Southern Bell Building (1950's)


    The new arena, as seen from the Hart Expressway


    vacant buildings on the corner of Adams & Broad hoping to be reused some day


    Laura Street on New Year's Eve


    The Jacksonville Landing


    St. Johns River


    A piece of the newer Southbank skyline


    A piece of the Northbank skyline

    So does it resemble a Midwestern City?

    This is exactly what I saying to myself. These buildings look almost excatly like half the buildings on Wabash or State in Chicago's Loop.
