A picture of the Register and Tribune building from the April, 1916 edition of Des Moines, published by the Des Moines Chamber of Commerce. The caption says, “This is the new 13-story building of The Des Moines Register and Tribune, now under construction on Locust Street near Seventh. It is one of the big Improvement features of Des Moines for 1916.”

The same building, vacated last week by the newspaper company…
