Old business building...

I loaded this before I left home...was in a hurry to load something and this is just what I came to first.  We were sitting at a stoplight in Crawfordsville...love these old buildings.  I just wish I could have been around to see some of these places built.

Impressive detail under the eaves and around the windows.

I've heard these details referred to as "gingerbread". Don't think that's a technical architectural term though. :-)

I've often wondered if details like these were pre-cast. I see much the same architecture, in some of the older buildings, where I live.

old buildings amaze me that they could build all the beauty way back when without all the tools we have today

This old building has a detailed row of decoration just below the roof. I don't know what it's called.
An interesting building.

They just don't detail like they used to do they?

This old building is still looking and standing strong. Very detailed designs which we do not see in new buildings.

The architecture is so different from what is built today. It would be fun to see buildings like this being built.

They really don't make buildings like they used to do they, with such detail.
