I recently found this rare postcard of the Hotel Munn.

I've outlined the Hotel Munn on this detail of a 6x8 negative found on ebay

Beaudry described the view in 2010.

Then usual suspects the Fremont, the Trenton, then counter clockwise up Olive from 5th, love the backside of the Auditorium, and note the 'lil Mission-style Munn, which was eaten up by the subway terminal project. The Wales up the street.
As far as I can tell, there is one other photograph of the Munn on NLA,
