Post Street - Then And Now

So here's something weird -

This is a link to photos of a street corner in Spokane - Sprague and Post - that talks about a building where I worked - the Peyton Building (10 North Post) - when I first moved here. It was in the Peyton Building that the Spokane Indians baseball team had offices in 1946 - which is how I've been writing the movie script of my baseball novel "Until the End of the Ninth" (pretty quickly having people in the 10 North Post building). And here is a feature in the Spokesman Review newspaper this week, highlighting that very block - as though nothing has existed in Spokane but this street corner, for about a century now.

10 North Post is in the middle of the block going up and out of the left side of the photos. It is the first building that is tall in the 1900 photo.

And here are copies of the photos that are provided in the link - the 1900 photo comes from the Northwest Room of the Spokane Public Library (a great researching resource), and the modern photo was taken by Jesse Tinsley of the Spokesman Review:
