Behold the Palace Unto Produce

I used to think of this building as just the one with the giant tire in front—Cadillac Plastics on Henderson Street.

But originally it was the Fort Worth Public Market (1930), a place for local farmers to sell their fruits and vegatables, although the market closed in 1941.

Today I looked at the building again.

Wow. Niches, arches, terra-cotta, columns, curves galore.

And a stained glass tower.

If ever there was a cathedral built to cauliflower . . .
