That is the trouble with American architecture...they tear down the beautiful and replace with gawdy. Mine today is OCEAN SPRAY Do come visit me if you can find time. :o)
looking very graceful
Do you know if they caught the arsonist(s)?
PS----regarding your comment, I live in Corpus. My son tho, he's in Houston. LOL
Jeez, arson? Not cool. Beautiful building though.
Big mistake. What were people thinking? Do you think we appreciate the older architecture more now?
I realize that is a mixed up comment. Obviously the reason it was destroyed wasn't because someone was "thinking"...but maybe more thought could have given to restoring it?I doubt this cleared up my previous comment, but I had to try. :-)
Always good to know how old we are, down to the last second....Hope you found your diet coke.
I love old buildings particularly churches, chapels and cathedrals. I was fortunate enough to visit parts of Europe and see some fabulous examples that just took my breath away. So sad when such gems are destroyed. Sadder even when they are allowed to crumble away from neglect.
What a beautiful cathedral. I hope they caught whoever did it.Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/
Dang hack architects!
When comparing to the original? Nothing will ever be as pretty.
So that means it survived the Earthquake of '07? Just to burn...sad.
