This is only based on the black and white photos I've seen posted on other forums, but I think a lot of downtown was surrounded by low rise industrial and rail uses and gritty working class areas. Nothing terribly exciting.

"Hell's half acre" had it survived could have been a cool gentrification opportunity though. However that AFAIK was torn down to build the convention center and water gardens, not just left as vacant land.

Also some things were saved, like the T&P depot
