Class on Glass: From Paddock to Post

Time for another look at classic architecture juxtaposed against the brittle blue backdrop of modernity:

Paddock Viaduct (1913) and the county courthouse (1895).

Lamp post of the old central post office (1933).

Courthouse horse fountain (1892, reconstructed 1999).

Burk Burnett Building (Sanguinet and Staats, 1914).
