Economy Lodge - Anderson, Indiana

Scatterfield Road (IN9) - Some great patterned blocks and railings.  I love the view into the lobby with the grand staircase.  I would imagine that where now there is conduit running down the wall to a security light, there was originally a hanging sputnik light fixture or some other fantastic mod chandelier.

Whiteside Bakery - Louisville, Kentucky

1400 West Broadway - This great 1908 mission revival industrial building was designed by Arthur Loomis.  It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.  I love the level of design that used to go into buildings of all uses.  It's very doubtful you would see that much work go into a building of similar use today.

Detail of the right tower.

Ramon Theater - Frostproof, Florida

15 East Wall Street - Restored 1925 Meditteranean Revival Theater.  Everything I've been able to find lists the architect as Leo Elliot, who I can not find any information on.  It may refer to M. Leo Elliott who was a prominent Tampa architect of the period.
