Across from the Globe Warehouse was the Southern Feed and Grocery Co. Warehouse. This picture probably dates from the 1960s, based on the truck and its decrepit state.

The location of the structure can be seen in this picture from the late 1920s or 1930s - the dark roof at the lower right-hand corner of the frame, across from the Globe Warehouse

This view , looking west up Main St., shows (dimly) the front of the warehouse - the Globe Warehouse has the 'striping' on the front corners, and train cars sit between the Southern Feed Warehouse and the Walker Warehouse (with the chimneys).

And a view of the east side of the warehouse, on Great Jones St., between W. Main and W. Chapel Hill Streets. This picture dates from just before the creation of the underpass at Chapel Hill St. (Great Jones was regraded to slope down to the underpass soon after this picture.) You can see the "Street Closed" sign at the end of the block.

Another view from the intersection of Main and Great Jones, looking southwest, 1963.

Like the Globe, the Southern Feed Warehouse was torn down sometime in the late 1960s/early 1970s as part of Urban Renewal.
