Hotel Alvarado

This John C. Austin-designed hotel was on the NE corner of 6th and Alvarado. I'm not sure when it was built, but it's on the 1906 Sanborn Map. It looks like it had a large roof garden:

1970s, looking west on 6th at Alvarado. The stripped-down Hotel Alvarado, with commercial storefronts added along the sidewalk, is at right:

Apparently the Hotel Alvarado was closed after a bad fire in the early 1980s:

This is what's on the NE corner of 6th and Alvarado today:
