Whimsical Windows - Capital City Detailing


Toby's fun architectural meme, Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors reappears, and today I am archiving (is that a verb ?) from pictures taken inside the Connecticut State Capital in Hartford - and at wheelchair height from the second floor. The dusty rose and gold tones of the 1879 building are bright and bold, Nothing today is detailed quite as nicely as this!

You are right - there is not nearly such beautiful detailing created nowadays. There aren't the craftsmen left to do it either, more's the pity.

Wow, those really are so detailed and impressive! I'm glad you found them while archiving, everything nowadays is so much flatter and smooth, nice in its own right, but *so* different! Thanks for sharing this with us!
