J… Jacksonville
Old Morocco Building, Jackson, Floridaby Keri
Most buildings built this type of “Moroccan” or “Moorish” style were theaters or, as the original name of this building seems to indicate (see below) Masonic temples of some sort, like the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, which for many years was both a movie theater and the local Shriners HQ.
From Flickr:

Also known as the Powell Building and Morocco Temple, this was the only convention center in Jacksonville until the old train station was turned into the Prime Osborne. It’s also one of many buildings that Henry James Klutho designed for the city. He did a shit-ton of buildings for them after the great fire of 1901.
