Circa 1920 photograph looking down South Winter Street with Clark Memorial Hall visible.   W. McConnell’s Dry goods store is operating in the building to the north of the Armory Block building.  Although it can’t be seen in this photo, the Armory Block and the McConnell’s building had their 3rd floors attached together with a ~15 foot long “pedestrian bridge” floating 30 feet off the ground.  If you look at the north side of the Armory Block building today, you can see where the opening has been bricked up.
