San Carlos Hotel in the 1940’s …

This is a photo that my father made sometime in the 1940’s … note that the front of the hotel facing Palafox Street does not have the” San Carlos” sign on the top of the building that you see in the photo from around 1955.  Also notice that people are walking / crossing in the middle of the street.  It is as if the center median just extended across Garden Street.  The traffic at this intersection must not have been busy enough to bother these people walking in what seems all directions, although there seems to be quite a few cars on the road.
