A walk along the historic Gold Spot building, built in 1925.
The Leighton G. Knipe house, c 1909… after surviving a fire in 2010, now under restoration by Motley Design.
From the inside, front doors to the entrance of the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral on Roosevelt Street… a cool respite from the afternoon heat on the street
The Wyndham Hotel
Update ~ 9/25/12. So interesting… this weekend the AZ Republic had a feature on this hotel, which was built on the site of what was originally called Hotel Adams, built in 1896. Most intriguing were the references used to describe the current building’s unusual style… from the “eyebrow windows” to “the world’s largest cheese grater.” Love it.
The Security Building, built in 1928
The soft dappled afternoon light and reflective activity on the windows drew my attention to this building which I was not familiar with. As I was with friends who were on a mission that did not include spending even five minutes to capture the perfect photo, I snapped on the run. Later, curious about the building, I found this article which provides a nice review of the Security Building, a historic fixture in downtown.
Rode the Light Rail this weekend for the first time.. have to say it is a class act… This is the view from rail station/stop at Central and Van Buren, with Hotel Monroe (pinkish building) in the background.
I didn’t know… but now I do, and I’m glad I do! Mary + Martha
Sometimes these freak me out… they seem to be getting higher and narrower with more cork screw turns then imaginable… I get vertigo, am I driving or flying?!
