While O.V. Hunt was taking photographs of some of the workers posing on an I-beam on top of the Tutwiler Hotel during its construction, he took the opportunity to climb aboard the girder himself to get an unparalleled view of Twentieth Street below. This black and white photograph, likely made by his assistant, documents the occasion.
