More errata?

  • The sentence "The hotel was also the site, during the 1891 Southern Baptist Convention, of the committee meeting at which the Southern Baptist Sunday School Board was founded." is, I believe, incorrect. See the plaque at O'Brien Opera House which states that it was founded there instead. --Wheresdib 14:25, 28 December 2007 (PST)
  • Since the Opera House and the Florence Hotel were within a block of each other, I think it is conceivable that the constituents were staying in the hotel and had their meeting at the opera house. Any thoughts on changing the sentence structure, or removing it from here? I wonder what the source is for the blurb in the Florence article. --Wheresdib 12:45, 29 December 2007 (PST)

And more

  • J. D. Weeks also has an apparent error in Birmingham in Vintage Postcards. He has a card showing the 1884 building, captioned (on the card) as the "New Florence Hotel". Weeks dates the card to c. 1915, at which time the building pictured would have been somewhat "old" (and about to be torn down) and the "New Florence" wasn't yet dreamed up.
