Skywatch Friday: City Hall

We're enjoying fair weather; some days are actually hot.  These blue skies are representative of the last several days.  Maybe this year we'll have a true summer.  Leafing out trees don't yet obscure our City Hall.  When it was completed in 1914 it was called the "wedding cake."  It was also the first highrise government building in the country and the tallest building west of the Mississippi!   For other sky views, be sure and visit Skywatch Friday.

  1. How much things have changed in 98 years! It may no longer be the tallest building west of the Mississippi, but it is a beautiful wedding cake of a building... Very nice!

  6. I wonder why they went upward. Surely at the time it was built, land was probably cheap so they didn't have to go highrise. A mystery!

  7. What a pretty shot with the fresh greenery of springtime popping out on those trees. Nice color combination. Thanks for stopping by at my sky! Enjoy the day (and sunshine)!
