Arrow-right Camera


June 5, 1928: This view shows Spokane’s civic center, the stretch of Riverside Avenue where clubs, churches and lodges were built. On the left side of the street you can see the Touraine Hotel annex, the Western Union Life building and the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes. On the right, nearest to farthest, are the Spokane Club, an empty lot (future site of the Chamber of Commerce building), the Masonic Temple, the Elks Lodge and the Smith and Co. building.
