Toaster Interwar Modernism
  •   mschloem There isn't a lot of Art Deco in Europe? I didn't know that. 2d
  •   thunderbird65 Yeah it is fairly plain and austere early modernism. None of the Art Deco embellishments found on other skycrapers of the same period 2d
  •   diamondzoo Awesome 2d
  •   michielverstraten Very cool! 2d
  •   interwarmodernism Thank you very much @archytexas, @diamondzoo and @michielverstraten !! 2d
  •   interwarmodernism Oh @mschloem – big misunderstanding! There is lots of art deco in Europe (it was kind of born in Paris), BUT you won't find many high-rise structures one could call a »skyscraper«. There are many nice examples for quite high apartment buildings (check out Villeurbanne in the metropolitan area of Lyon, France for example), but some height is missing to call them a skyscraper. The Boerentoren in Antwerp, Belgium is not really huge either, but the overall design and outcome or impression is quite close to a real skyscraper. 2d
  •   interwarmodernism @thunderbird65 That is a quite interesting period in a certain way. The fascist regimes in Germany and Italy with their strong and sometimes weird ideas of art and architecture surely had a huge influence on the design of projects like that ... probably ... I'll have to read some lines about the tower in Genoa – very interesting, thanks again for the hint! 2d
  •   mschloem @interwarmodernism oh!!!!! Ok! Thank you!!! You're so kind! 2d

beckykuhnphotography Ever since I was kid I fell in love with #hotlakesprings. It was falling apart and was in need of some serious tlc. My photographer aunts even broken in and captured some beautiful images of the place when it was in disrepair. I would have given anything to be there snapping away with them. The place has now been completely renovated and restored to it's former glory. I'm still in love with the place and all the mysteries it holds. #motherdaughtertrip #iloveoldbuildings #hotlakesanitarium #sheslookinghalfherage #thispicturedoesntdoitjustice #beckykuhnphotography 6d
  •   khougraffeo We went there for my in laws wedding anniversary couple years ago. It was absolutely beautiful and holds so much history. We had such a great time there. Thanks for sharing the photo. It brought back a lot of memories. 6d
  •   beckykuhnphotography @khougraffeo I'll have to get copies of my aunt's photos before they did all the renovations. It was amazing then too! 6d
  •   khougraffeo @bkphoto9 I would love to see them!! Their museum was my favorite. 6d

thebedfordlife Ok so I'm stopped on the road, AGAIN... Only this time a passing cop reminds me I'm blocking the road. "Yes, Mr Officer I'm a weirdo who blocks the road to take pics of a cemetery, I'll proceed as directed" Then I went and ate a donut. Hubby tells me this is a storage shed for the cemetery caretaker but I thought it was so beautiful.

thebedfordlife Sorry about the terrible street sign.... But every time I see this church I fall in love. Can never get a pic because I'm always driving but today I'm riding shotgun on a road trip. #obsessed #IloveOLDbuildings #church #architecture #stonebuliding #stonestructure #granite #WaterburyCT #whyIsThereALWAYStraffic #craftsmanship #notHomeDepot #roadtrip 2w
