Milwaukee had a bluff separating the rail lines (Now Lincoln Mem. Drive) from the built downtown.

I would guess the Rock Island / Quad Cities.

Sorry, but Milwaukee is wrong by hundreds--not thousands-- of miles! (That's no help, is it?) Hint: it's a river, not a lake.

And it's not the Quad Cities, either, but that's getting closer!

Man I was actually thinking of superior wi but I didn't think that was right, they would have had the hills of duluth in the background. A guess... Knoxville, TN.

Superior, Wisc.--Nope!

Knoxville, TN--Wrong!

St. Louis--Sorry!

Hint: The city is nearer to St. Louis than to Superior or Knoxville.

Memphis and St Louis were among my first choices, but seeing as how both are already taken and at least one is wrong, how about... Cleveland?

Memphis it is.

In 1900, Memphis was the 2nd largest city in the 11 state South after New Orleans.

Those three "skyscrapers" were among the first in the South and are now used as apartments.
