I’m fairly certain it’s the same
Perhaps. It seemed like there aren't enough stairs and that the first floor windows were different, but between the perspective and resolution, it's hard to say.
Did you run across this?
It's a fairly fascinating account from the apparently next door newspaper (nice and convenient!). This fire supposedly started at 9:45 in the morning. There's lots of neat little details in there, such as:
Usual ineffective and underpowered 19th century firemen. We were obviously much better at building gigantic stone buildings than shooting water 40 feet into the air. Also, as it explains that the tower was made mostly out of wood, I'm imagining all the photos of various buildings, like the US Capitol Building, where the only major construction documented seems to be the dome. Lends credence to the stone parts that don't seem to easily burn being perhaps reclaimed from a previous era.
Also, just wanted to post this illustration from the newspaper:
I'm not even really sure what this is supposed to be. With the "wild scene" described taking place in prime Friday morning hours, you'd think one person might have wanted to take a picture during the event. Maybe even someone from the next door newspaper? Jimmy Olsen is rolling in this grave!
