HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD,
Square (view 2 of 7)
This postcard is postmarked November 4, 1910 to Miss Lucile Morris
in Dadeville. This photograph was taken after the first postcard
because the Smith Clothing Company has a permanent sign. The County
Courthouse is the building at the left, on the north corner of College.
This is the area where the current Heer's Building stands. Smith
Clothing and High Class Clothing are the businesses in the next
two buildings. The building behind the Gottfried Tower appears to
be vacant. The five-story building on the right is the National
Exchange Bank, where the State Office Building currently stands.
The infamous Gottfried Tower, where the 1906 lynching was carried
out, is in the foreground. A trolley can be seen on the lower right
hand portion of the postcard.
