    Love it! I always thought of this building as the Mutual Of Omaha Building. Now I know it’s the E. Clem Wilson Building and had a life before Mutual Of Omaha! I used to cringe after they took the tower off the top and had the Asahi Beer signs in place of the Mutual Of Omaha signs. I guess there were people before me that cringed when Mutual Of Omaha installed THEIR signage! 🙂
