Another one bites the dust in Downtown Houston: Historic red-brick building of erstwhile Hogan Allnoch Drygoods Company Demolished


Downtown Demise 
Another one just bit the dust 

Hogan-Allnoch was here 
The end of the Hogan Allnoch Dry Goods Company Building
This historic structure was owned by Harris County,
which could have preserved it if the political will had been there.
1311 Texas Avenue, Houston, Texas, Downtown Houston 77002

Foundation of Hogan Allnoch building still visible after building razed 
COH Demo Permit in rainbow hues after the rain (and the demo)

Old neighbor to the West: Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Branch Building
(now Houston Area Urban League headquarters
Corner of Texas Ave and Austin Street - South-East
