Best Answer

Harzfelds, The Jones Store, John Taylor's, Kline's, The Palace & Emery Bird Thayer were there about that time. Also, Macy's was there then, or soon after.

Wolfermann's restaurant was prominent.

The Hotel Phillips was near the Muehlbach Hotel (sp?); the PickWick Hotel was a few blocks away and housed a radio station around that time.

This information is from my mother, who honeymooned with my father at the Hotel Phillips on January 11, 1942.
