Hotel - Bowling Green, Florida

Edward R. Hills Residence - Oak Park, Illinois

313 Forest Avenue - In 1906 Frank Lloyd Wright remodeled this home to something resembling its current state.  Since then it has been remodeled, mostly destroyed by fire, restored, remodeled and restored.  I don't think I've ever read about a house that's gone back and forth so much between owners wanting to change it and ones wanting to restore it to its 1906 incarnation.

Eastern-Columbia Building - Los Angeles, California

849 South Broadway - One of my favorite buildings and one that I was very happy to see up close and personal and yet somehow I only took six pictures and one of them ended up blurry.  The horror!  This magnificent tuquoise terra cotta art deco gem was completed in 1930 and designed by Claud Beelman.
