    Ignore the first tag, I still can't tell the diference between I'm in the "tag it" page and the "tag it" link page that loses all of the mapping you've done... but I'm slow

    Address of "The Clinton" is 417 Penn Ave looking toward the point. The building to the right is the Hotel Lincoln which is across Evans Alley from the Clinton. Evans ran between Stanwix and Fourth where Penn continued to the point prior to the construction of Gateway Center.

    My methodology: Search "The Clinton" in City Directory, find 1918 listing for manager (Wm J. Schaffer)with home address of 415 Penn Ave,
    Curse my luck for not having a business address, then realize manager may have lived on premises...

    Check map, Wabash overpass and all buildings correspond. Viola...

    the same site in 1937: a block-wide parking garage...

    Sorry about the confusion Matt. That trips up a lot of people and I really need to do something about it soon.
