Wow that is beauty!

Jack said...

It is quite attractive, in a severe kind of way. I'm glad it was renovated and put to a new use. Did you notice who is featured in the bust and plaque on the end?

A true beauty and I love its color.

Dina said...

A nice building, but it looks lonely.
Maybe you add a bench, or a tree? Ah, but not room.

I really enjoyed my flying (you-tube video) trip in and over your city!
-Happy Easter!
