Redmont Hotel Rear View- click to see full size image
From here you can see one of the large rooftop neon signs. Notice the back side of the hotel makes extensive use of red brick, which was likely less expensive than the brown which is used for decorative strips. Formerly this hotel was operated under the Crown Plaza brand, if you look closely you can see the outline of the former Crown Plaza sign on the right side. For a historic 1930 photo from this angle see click here for a photo from the Birmingham Public Library collection. Yes, the Presbyterian church that is also in the historic photo is still there!
