There are two comments.

  The building is the former Palace Hotel which my grandfather Horace Humphreymanaged between 1898 and 1913 and which was the childhood home of my mother, modern dancer Doris Humphrey.At the time it catered to a largely theatricalhotel. My mother writes: "The Palace Hotelwas anything but impressive or smart. Itoccupied one corner of two commercialcross streets; the other three corners were blooming with prosperous saloons. Our corner clanged with trolley cars and drunks at all times of the day and night." For a description of what life was like at the Palace Hotel read her account in the book"Doris Humphrey: An Artist First".

  Urban Insurance Agency had been a tenant in this building more than 30 years ago. Walking through the interior today I can say nothing has changed.It seems almost forgotten in time.Interesting to know that in it's early years it was a building with a strong musical connection. Also at one point the 6 story building had an 8 story clock tower.
