Van Antwerp Bldg in Mobile

The grand old Van Antwerp Bldg. is located on the corner of Dauphin and Royal Sts. in downtown Mobile. When it opened in 1908, the 11-story structure was hailed as the first skyscraper in Alabama. Of course, it also sports a majestic ghost sign!

The ornate façade has seen better days:
