Ever get that feeling you were born in the wrong era... at least, architecturally? Here's a look at 156 Canal Street circa 1910-1915, when it was the White House Hotel. According to the Library of Congress this is where "John F. Schrank lived before his attempted assassination of U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt in 1912." (More photos of Schrank's arrest here). Since that time, as you can see, the building has been stripped of its gorgeous facade, and an HSBC bank has set up shop next door. Paging Doc Brown, we're gonna need that DeLorean asap.
