What Is It? Where Is It?


OK Birminghamians,  this is a little test for you. I play this on my Paris blog from time to time.  Tell me what this is and where it is.  A fabulous prize MIGHT be offered to the winner!

20th Street?

the image itself is prize enough. some sort of ornamental/functional masonry that you've turned into a work of art. can't wait to hear where you found it.

The lost pyramids of Sloth Furnace in Birmingham, AL. Sorry I gave it away. ;)

Wonderful shot Virginia!

Maybe it is Sloss, as Rob says. But I'm guessing not. Maybe decorative brick on an old downtown building, probably a church. Advent? No, it's stone, not brick. 1st Methodist? ditto. So either St. Paul's or 1st Presbyterian. I guess 1st Pres.....?

Virginia said...

Good guesses. And Rob I'm LOL at Sloth Furnace. Good for you, you are close, it's SLOSS! :)

Sorry, didn't mean that Rob has the correct answer. That will be revealed tomorrow!

Okay, decorative brickwork in a wall somewhere, but the location? Geez, I know Birmingham about as well as I know Vladivostok.

Grinding teeth of some sort :-)
