Photograph (of a Shepherd Studio photograph) of a Levytype Company (of Cincinnatti, Ohio) engraving showing Twentieth Street looking north from First Avenue, North. The First National Bank of Birmingham Building is on the right. This building was called "Linn's Folly" because, when it was completed in 1873, it was an ambitious three-story building built of brick and towered over the rest of the early city. The building was also the site of Birmingham's "Calico Ball" held on December 31, 1873, to help raise spirits following a year that included a cholera epidemic and an economic panic.
