The Nashville YMCA - Photo

In Jamais Vu, I did some memory recovery on the Downtown Nashville YMCA of my youth. I also spent some time trying to locate a photograph of the building. This is the best I could find:

The black cube was, as I recall, a bank building that went up in the mid-60s, still shorter than the L&C Tower, although there was a building behind the camera (possibly from which this photo was taken), that was taller by the time of this photo in 1972.

The small bit of building you can see in the lower right corner is the roof of the Downtown YMCA.

The photographer was Charles W. Warterfield, and this image is part of a special digital collection of the Nashville Public Library.
