  • Significance:  The 1928 directory list W. C. Binion as living at 206 Mantooth and as Vice-President of Watford Binion Printing Company. The 1937 directory lists W.C. and Made P. Binion at 404 Mantooth; he was the U. S. Postmaster. The different addresses can probably be attributed to a large scale address change throughout the city between 1928 and 1937, noted in the directories. It is nominated to the National Register.
