Hidden Curves

I must have passed by this detail on the old Library hundreds of times but only noticed it recently. Maybe it was covered with vines?  This is just another in a series of great details you won't find on a newly built building! They really DON'T "make them like they used to!"


  1. Actually they still make that stuff, sadly no architects specify it anymore. That is what my company does for a living :-). ( Love the fact that it caught your eye, and that you appreciate the beauty of our older buildings. Wonderfully composed photo.

  2. I agree.. the modern utilitarian approach to buildings has left gracefulness out of our daily lives...
