Virtual Tour of The Redmont Hotel - Corner View
The Redmont Hotel exterior viewed from the corner. From this view you can see the 1st and 2nd floors have a decorative terra cotta facing. From the 3rd floor up construction is of light brown brick with terra cotta accents. The cornice (horizontal decorative trim that protrudes out from the very top of the walls) on this side is a restoration, if you look at the late 1970's era photo (click here
) you will see it is missing. (The historic photo is from the National Registry Nomination file.) For a 1939 photo click here
for a photo from the Birmingham Public Library collection.
