The Lot At Capitol & Lee Streets
interesting photo shows the lot where the Kanawha Valley Bank would
soon be built. The year is 1928 and the Diamond Dept Store to the
left is already open for business at it's new location. Two more
sections would be added later to the Diamond. The new movie
"Rinty Of The Desert" starring Rin TinTin is playing at the Rialto.
The sidewalk circle was part of the old State Capitol lawn,
and was the focal point for a statue. |
