Since were constantly on the topic of lost buildings here are two from some time ago. One is easy the other might take longer to figure out.

Here is the first:
fire

And the second:
demo

Who can name these buildings and when they were burnt/demolished and in the case of the demolished building why was it demolished?

The first building is B Siegels on the corner of Woodward & State; the second is (I believe) the Palmetto Hotel on the corner of John R & Hancock.

I don't remember it at all. When did it come down?
