General Description

This vantage chosen by Grosz was somewhat atypical for postcard views of the city, but it allowed him a clear view of the skyscrapers that dominated the skyline of Dallas, most prominently the Mercantile Building, the Magnolia Building, the Davis Building, and the Adolphus hotel, where Grosz stayed when he visited Dallas to make sketches for the series Impressions of Dallas of which this work was a part.
