DescriptionThe slide reads: "1980/38/48." The photograph shows an air view of Jefferson Street in Peoria, Illinois looking south from the Lehmann Bldg. The tall building on the right side of the photograph is the Jefferson Hotel which was demolished to make way for the Peoria Civic Center. Closer to the foreground is the Rialto Theater. The building across the street from the Jefferson Hotel is Midstate College of Commerce. The slightly taller white building behind Midstate College is the Creve Coeur Club. The sign on the tall office building on the left side of the photograph reads Florsheim Shoes. The street just in front of it is now Fulton Plaza. There are cars parked along the curb on each side of Jefferson Street all facing south indicating this picture was taken after the street was made one-way.
