Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.

After the federal government announced that it would be renaming the building again in honor of former President Bill Clinton on May 13, 2013, the building was officially renamed to its current title, the William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building, at a ceremony that took place July 17, 2013.

Mellon. Construction on the Clinton Building was completed in 1934.
The Clinton Building was a central feature of the redevelopment.
