Offices of the Chickasha Cotton Oil Company, Anadarko Cotton Oil Company & James E. Brooks, Cotton Broker. Front St. at Madison Ave., Memphis TN - Circa 1926

Building on the right is 67 Madison Ave.
This 12 story structure was built in 1924 as the headquarters for the Union Planters Bank. This major financial institution was founded after the Civil War and was the largest bank in Memphis. Designed by architects McKim, Mead and White, the building was recently renovated and converted to apartments with the lobby and mezzanine used for retail space. The building was added to the National Register in 1979 and was featured in the 1993 movie "The Firm"

is that 247 Washington Ave ?

That's a GREAT question that I wouldn't have thought of until you brought it up.

It's about the right size & it's the exact location of the Circa 1912 photo.

Here it is when I took a photo of it in 2019 & the plaque with info.

City of Memphis Public Works Building, 247 Washington Ave., Memphis TN - Remodeled Circa 1956

I believe that’s the former Menorah Institute that was built next to the synagogue.
