photograph
Black and white photograph of the Watts Building built in 1888 at 2006 Third Avenue, North. This photograph has often been said to show the funeral procession of famed Birmingham madam Louise Wooster because all of the carriages appear to be empty. Legend says that Birmingham citizens sent their carriages to her funeral to show respect; however, propriety prevented them from going themselves. The fact simply is that there was a funeral parlor in the Watts Building; this photograph likely is merely for advertisement purposes.

photograph
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.
