Monday of last week I shared a picture of the outside of Doc’s Meat Market, owned by G.C. “Doc” Moore on Commerce Street in West Monroe. This is the same building, only a wider shot.
The top floor was the Carolina Hotel, said to be a “bawdy house”. Below was a cafe’/saloon. On the right was Doc’s meat market. The two figureheads on either side of the building are no longer there. It is said one fell and shattered, and the building owner took the other one down for safety.
