Big and tall and thin and dull, the Sheridan sat at the edge of downtown off Nicollet Avenue. It was demolished in the early 70s (and was fully occupied at the time, the papers said. I take this to mean it had become a residential hotel and was full of tenants, not that everyone was killed when the wrecking ball began to swing.) There were plans to build another hotel on the site, but nothing came of it.

What you can't see in this picture is the building to the right, the old Auditorium. That must have made the Lyceum Cafe (the place with the awnings) the spot to go for coffee afterwards. It must have also meant that the theater trade used the Sheridan - something that suggests this drab ordinary slab had a little more glamor and drama than the building suggests.
