Barbara Jordan in front of the 1910 Courthouse

Unknown photographer, 1965

If you’re looking at the 1910 Courthouse today, you will not recognize the background of this photo at all. The 1910 Courthouse underwent a rather extensive renovation in 2009 that removed the facade you see behind Ms. Jordan. Now, this area is gone and has been replaced with a large staircase.

Below are a photo of the 1910 Courthouse prior to the renovation and a current street view of what it looks like now.
