1917, Carnegie Library, Houston, Texas

[LIB10.023] According to Wikipedia, this building was demolished. The Carnegie Library was located at the corner of Travis Street and McKinney Avenue. The lot for the building was purchased from the First Presbyterian Church around 1900-1901, with the library opening in 1904. The lot and building were sold back to the Church twenty-four years later. The building was deemed too small fifteen years after it was built. [Wikipedia]
