    Very interesting photo. Waaaaay before my time on market, but the Temple Hotel

    was there until torn down for the mall in the 70's. The Temple Lounge remained for several years after the beautiful Downtown Mall was erected.

    It would have been fun to rattle down market on a horse and wagon in those days.
