Today we revisit Southside's historic Terrace Court building. Located on the corner of 20th Street and Highland Avenue, my sources say it was the first high rise building built in the south. ( Guess that was pre Burj Dubai! ) I'm guessing the tile floor below is original to the building. I've posted photos from two businesses housed here: Chaffin Carousel Carving School here and Dave's Pub here. Hope to go inside and get some photos when I make a visit to Chaffin's after the holidays.
The Paris Through My Lens Calendar Giveaway is going on over on my Paris Blog.
Hop over and leave a comment letting me know you'd like to be in the drawing on Christmas Eve
I love this image of the stairs and stone railing.
And I'm fascinated by the brickwork in the second image.
Stepping up into history. Interesting architecture full of great details.
A very busy architecture! As busy as I am, lol... I'll switch to your French side now :)
Great perspective and details!
Your header is SO... Christmas! :-) Really nice shot!
Life has gotten in the way of blog visiting .. I apologize ... wonderful shot and I always have the same thought when I see old staircases: If only they could talk .. imagine all that has gone up/down and on them
Sydney - City and Suburbs
absolute elegance. Wow, such old school southern charm V
I love old buildings the best.
Why that looks positively you-row-peein'. British, specifically. Old money elegance in B'ham.
«Louis» likes the Greek keys above the bricks in the next to last image. Nice post, Virginia!
"Nice" - That reminds «Louis» of those hypocritical women in his native Texas, drawling "Well, isn't thet niiice?!", their false sincerity dripping from their voices, spoken about something of which they actually disapproved of...
Perhaps «Louis» should modify his text to "That's a fine post, Virginia." He really means it. ;-)
Love the detail in these images, VJ. The colours and textures of the first fill me with quiet joy. Unassuming yet contributing at the same time. My sort of concept.
detail photos are my favorite. The greek key pattern is a favorite of mine
