A photograph of the artwork design of the columns of the American Legion Post 5 clubhouse in Nashville, Tennessee. This building was located at 120 9th Avenue S. (previously Vauxhall Street.) The post also made use of the house at 118 9th Avenue S, so the official address is listed at different times as 118 (with no address appearing for 120) and 118-120 9th Avenue S. The exact date of construction is uncertain, but it appears as a dwelling on maps as early as 1897. The American Legion Post 5 used the clubhouse for meetings and social events until its demolition in the 1960s. Photographed by the Nashville architect Charles Wesley Warterfield, Jr. (1926-1998); the architectural photograph forms part of the Charles Warterfield Architectural Collection. Gift of: The Estate of Charles W. Warterfield, Jr., F. A. I. A.
