Salt Lake City (early 60s?)

Salt Lake City (early 60s?)
This postcard was a gift from Roadsidepictures and shows a vintage view of downtown Salt Lake City. The postcard is undated and unmailed, but I'm guessing from the cars that it's from the 1960s. Anyone have another opinion on the date? Viewed large, you can clearly see the Centre Theatre as well as the old Auerbach's department store, and even a tiny glimpse of the Ding Ho Cafe sign in the Brooks Arcade there on 3rd South. The Hotel Utah looks huge, and note that this image predates the big Church Office Building. I have never seen this view before and I love it!

Is that the Walker Bank Building on the left above the Auerbach's sign?

Yep, it sure is. I wonder why Auerbach's was covered in white along State Street there....
