Title: View of the Civil Courts building looking west down Market Street.

Description: View of the Civil Courts building looking down Market Street. The Civil Courts Building, part of a major public works bond issue that gave us Kiel Auditorium and Soldiers Memorial, opened in 1930, leading to the Old Courthouse being vacated and given to the National Park Service to use as a museum. The New Civil Courts building was designed by the architectural firm of Klipstein and Rathmann as an art deco skyscraper topped with a replica of the tomb of King Mausolus built in Asia Minor in 352 B.C., one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It houses a law library over ten stories of courtrooms.
