Dawn of Tomorrow With the Southern Hotel

Here’s an advertisement for the Southern Hotel opening in 1918, printed in The Washington Times. The building was located at 14 Light St., but sadly was razed. It still sits as an empty lot today. Take a look at this interesting article in Baltimore Sun from 1991, detailing the real estate market of the time and the attempts to build a 45-story skyscraper called One Light Street.
