The answer to the History Hunt #5 is:

Amanda Johnson Furnished Rooms, once located on the southwest corner of Florida Avenue and Polk Street, is now where the Tampa Theatre building is. Notice all of the electric and telephone wires as well as the once prevalent railroad crossing tower. As far as Tampa Preservation, Inc. is aware, there are no more remaining railroad towers left in Tampa. However, if you are aware of any, please let us know! Below is a better view of the tower.

    Super job, Bryan. A lot of people don’t realize that the theatre stage and auditorium are actually located in this building on the Florida Ave. side of Tampa Theatre. The 10-story building on Florida, which can be seen top center of the top photo, is where the entance is located and only houses the entrance and lobby.
