Whimsical Windows - Veterans Memorial, Derby


Toby hosts the architectural meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors, and we look for interesting subjects. Today, it is the Veterans Memorial Building in our neighboring town of Derby CT, the photos taken about four hours ago on a stunningly beautiful day of blue skies, low humidity and pleasant temperature of 80°F / 27°C . I do not know when it was built, but believe it was early 20th century. Since 2002, It hosts local veterans organizations such as the VFW and the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Whatever its history, it remains a good looking building that helps to remind us of those who served...

Really nice, very statuesque and strong looking, just like the veterans that it hosts :)

That is a very neatly put together little building. I really like the roof line.
