The Guyandotte Club once stood on the southeast corner of 4th Avenue and 11th Street, across from the present Coal Exchange Building. The club was formed sometime after the turn of the 20th century and survived the 1913 and 1937 floods. It survived until shortly after World War II, when the building was razed. A small diner was constructed on part of the vacant lot. However, that diner fell to the wrecker's ball in the late 1950s or early 1960s. There are many old postcards showing this building from the right of the front, but this view is rare. Thanks to Larry Legge for the information.
