4th and HIll Street Looking West 1939

looking west on 4th street from hill street, the fremont hotel is visible at the sw corner of olive and 4th, and further up the street the zelda apartments is visible at the sw corner grand and 4th


both the Zelda and the Fremont will be destroyed in conjunction with the construction of the 4th street viaduct in 1954. If you visit the parking lot on the sw corner of Olive and 4th, which still exists today, exactly as it has since the Fremont was torn down in 1954, the original Fremont retaining walls are still intact running east west on 4th and north south on Olive. There was absolutely no reason at all for the Fremont to be demolished.........sigh
