A lot of these vanished buildings had "Chicago" windows: two operable window at the ends with a larger fixed window in the middle. What surviving buildings have these?

Thanks for the list. Now I wonder how many are original and how many are modern double pane replacements. Imagine if historic tax credits used would be the case, but otherwise someone that cared enough.

Looking northeast from the middle of the block near 16th and Broadway. In the foreground is an interesting looking Dutch Colonial-style apartment building. They might be separate buildings, since parts look different. To the right of it is the Bradford Hotel Apartments. Both were on the intersection of 16th and Central. The photo appears to have been taken in the mid-60s based on the cars in the parking lot.

I found the Dutch Colonial-style apartments among the 1940 tax photos.

That corner today.
