The site of this photograph is West University Avenue at 13th Street, Gainesville's busiest intersection. Urban Lillard was a student at the University of Florida in 1947 when he stood on the walk of the old Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house (later the location of the Holiday Inn) and took this picture. The SAE house was on the southeast corner, the Varsity Grill and Molly's--The Modern Market (a grocery store) were on the northwest corner, and of course the University of Florida was on the southwest corner.
