Your slightly moody monochrome gives it a different feel though, nice work 👍✅😺 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 2, 2020 • 4:39 pm Thank you, Andy. Glad you’ve had a chance to photograph it. It’s such a pretty color, I don’t often think to do monochrome, but, I agree, it does gives it a classic, historic feel.

I’m so glad it wasn’t pulled down after the World’s Fair, and that the community recently rallied to fund and restore it. Sending well wishes your way….
