'One Short' Huntsville Times Building Tshirt

$ 18.75

A story of reaching high, but not quite high enough.  

Jacob Emory Pierce built the Huntsville Times Building in 1910 with eleven floors. He was soon out-staged by a hotel being built with 12 floors. Pierce demanded another floor for his building, but the elevator company said sorry, no plausible. Pierce is said to have told elevator representatives that if they couldn't fix the elevators to go to the top, he would not pay.

To this day, the elevators go only to the 11th floor. Pierce never paid.
