In 1913, the Jefferson County Savings and Loan, now the City Federal Building, opened its doors. Located downtown on 2nd Avenue North, this 27 story terra cotta faced building is still the tallest neo classical skyscraper in the southeast. Thankfully spared the wrecking ball, it is now open for business as City Federal condominiums.

I am in Paris this week. My photos are preposted this week. In addition to the Birmingham photo I am including a Paris photo from my last trip in March, 2007. From time to time I may leave a comment from Paris. Thanks for stopping by. Bonne weekend!
