This is looking west at the intersection of Garden Street and Palafox Street.  You see the Blount Building on the left side of the photo and the corner of the San Carlos is on the right side.  Next to the Blount Building is Marston – Quina Furniture store.  The showrooms were on different floors and you would ride the freight elevator to get to each floor.  It was a real highlight for a ten year old kid … our cousins the St. Johns owned the business, so when I went with dad ( or mother ) to visit them, I got to ride the elevator up and sown for what seemed like hours … the high-light of my day!   I do not know what hurricane this was when my father made this photo, but I have posted one other one looking down Palafox Street during this same storm.  Not sure of the year, but I am sure it was the mid 1950’s.  Thanks for looking …
