Color postcard with divided back and no border, postally unused. The image shows Bay Street as it was before 1981, when the Hyatt Regency Hotel was built. Prior to that time, Bay Street was a busy international port, lined with brick and stucco commercial buildings. The prominent red brick building on the bottom right was owned in the 1920s by the Neal Blun Company, which sold building supplies. The Morning News sign is visible on the white building near the center on the left edge of the card. The building still remains but has been converted to retail space and condos. The view of the river shows the river as it appeared before the large Talmadge Bridge was first built in 1953 and replaced in 1990.
