Description

Two black and white photographs of the Cuatro Flores Inn 222 Water, located on the corner or Water and Wyoming streets. The first image is of a small square wood and brick building with a storefront appearance.

The front of the building also has a small awning right below the roof coving the front door and windows. The left side of the building has two windows, one with an air conditioning unit on top. A large billboard is positioned right next to the building and a partial view of the sign can be seen in the upper quarter of the photo. A partial view of the intersection can be seen on the right hand of the building, and a car has been captured passing by in the lower left corner of the photograph, and a building with a fireplace can be seen in the background.

The second image is a street view of the same structure but from the right hand side off of Wyoming. The main part of the building has two large rectangular windows on that right side. The building also has an extension attached to back of the main building and it has two windows as well. Weeds surround the base of the building and there is a station wagon parked on the street next to it. The billboard in the first photo is now fully visible above the building.
