From the archives: A St. Petersburg history photo quiz

Downtown St. Petersburg, 1949

Downtown St. Petersburg, 1949

Here are two aerial photos of downtown St. Petersburg, one from 1949 and one from 1957. The bottom photo was used to create a photo illustration for a 1957 story about a new building being proposed for downtown. The photo illustration was created by placing labels on the hardcopy photograph (labels which I, for the most part, have blanked out).

Your challenge: Figure out what the buildings are that have the yellowed-out labels.

I'll post the original 1957 photo illustration tomorrow morning, so you can see how well you did. Have fun!
