The "new" Toltec Club building located at 602 Magoffin Ave. The Toltec Club was an exclusive club for prominent El Paso citizens. In it's prime, the club was arguably the social center of the city. The club was an originally located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building located on 207-209 Texas Street, but it soon grew out of it, and in 1908 the club bought the property on San Antonio and Magoffin Streets as the site of the new club building. The photo seems to have been taken during the final stages of construction as the bottom floor does not appear to have the glass panel/windows in yet. The building was designed by the Denver architect, John James Huddart. The ground floor featured a restaurant while the top floors held living quarters and club rooms. The Toltec Club formally opened the new building on October 14,1910.
