THE ALICO BUILDING
Photo by John R. Gorham
From the reverse side of postcard:
“Built in 1911, it is 22 stories tall and when built it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. During a devastating tornado in 1952* which virtually destroyed downtown Waco, the Alico Building withstood and sustained no damage.”
*The postcard incorrectly states that the Waco tornado was 1952. It was May 11, 1953.
