Barnes Hospital, 1940

From a Paul Monroe Co. postcard is this view of Barnes Hospital at Euclid Avenue and (what I presume was) Clayton Road (now Barnes Hospital Plaza). The two buildings on the right remain, but the buildings to the left were demolished for Queeny Tower and the hospital expansions in the 1960s.

For a similar view but with Queeny Tower already in place, click for a photograph.

The street in the foreground was Kingshighway. It originally ran on what's now Barnes Hospital Plaza and south on Euclid until the "dogleg" was straightened in the late 1940s during the construction of Highway 40.
