The Robinson Canyon, so-called. On the left is the Dowell Building, formerly the Petroleum Building, which once had a brightly lit ornamental derrick on its roof. Next to it is City Place, built in 1928 as the Ramsay Tower. It was designed by Clair Drury and built for oilman W.R. Ramsay for $3 million. It later was the Apco (or Anderson-Prichard Company) Building and still later Liberty National. In the distance is the grand First National Tower, built in 1931 for $5 million; the architects were Weary and Alford of Chicago. The Dowell Building is owned locally, but City Place is owned by Globe Life of Dallas, and the First National was sold in 2006 for $21 million to a Los Angeles investor.
