I also enjoyed A Ketchikan 'Auld Lange Syne' but I think Colleen
is right, the building in the lower right is the old Wingren
Court and the one in the upper left in Tongass Towers.
My Mom and Dad and I lived
in Tongass Towers in the early 1960's, but I remember it being
Austin Towers then, which makes more sense to me since the enterance
is actually on Austin Street, not Tongass Ave. Does anyone remember
when the name changed?

A Ketchikan 'Auld
Lange Syne' By JUNE
ALLEN - The familiar strains of that New Year's anthem play over
and over again in my mind as I think of the new year, brand new
2006, fast approaching. The lyrics of Auld Lane Syne simply remind
listeners not to forget old friends and places. I myself don't
need reminders to remember good old Ketchikan and all my old
friends as I sit here at the computer keyboard in far away Palmer,
Alaska. I could never, ever forget Ketchikan or that first impression
of Ketchikan that awaited me when I arrived! It was a long time
ago. - More...
