Here's another one I had done. The people in my community love seeing how things have changed and have really taken to me driving around in my T.

Great to see that elegant street level entry unchanged, sad to see the uglificatiion of the rest of the building. Another boring box.

These are fun to see, John, you're doing a good thing here, "revisiting" the past in your T !

John, would you know where Black Hawk tavern was?
Hotel Fort looks to have been demolished and incorporated into the other building. It is great when there is a photographic history for a then and now moment.

The tavern was inside of Hotel Fort and is still inside as of today. It closed about a year ago and will soon be remodeled into more senior citizen housing.

This building is just a box, but it has gone through many changes throughout its life. I think Hotel Fort was actually remodeled 3 times before the 20's.

What I think is funny about taking these photos is that people will let you do anything. I was standing in the middle of the intersection to get this photo and all the drivers just sat there waving and smiling.

Looks like Hotel Fort was demolished with the windows now all lining up and the foundation portion gone. Senior housing with a Tavern - only in Wisconsin.

Judging by the mis-alignment of the floors in the Hotel Fort and the other building, I think the corner building was torn down and the current one built on the site, tied into the other building.
Very cool now & then pics!

Is it just me, or are the double doors in the hotel in the first picture six feet above ground level?

Searching for the Black Hawk Tavern I fond this series of images:

hotelAnime.

It shows why the doors are so high.

Back the car up to the building on the right side ... and find a touring car and you have it!

My wife won't let me buy a car to match each photo I replicate. I tried, the excuse didn't work.

John - Was faced with a similar problem several years ago! Wife told me,...."We have a problem,.....we have three Model T's, but we have four sons!" I said to her,....."I'll work on that!" So,....after careful consideration of a couple possible ways to handle that problem, I can tell you that we STILL have four sons, and we now have four Model T's! (:^) (;^)

Harold, your wife is very understanding my wife not so much. For me to get another car I need to get rid of my other cars. The woman is cruel.
John C keep your photos coming. Very enjoyable.

Well, if the 1929 drawing is accurate, it went through one more modification that brought the windows all in alignment, and added a third layer of windows to the building on the right.

The building on the right looks like the same building, but the one on the corner looks like it was torn down and reconstructed sometime between 1915 and 1929.
