Annie Pfeiffer Chapel Interior - Lakeland, Florida Part Two



Colored glass inserts add a spot of color and let in a little light.

While I like this light fixture which I believe was located in a stairwell, it seemed really out of place.  I don't know if it's original or not.

Houses - Marietta, Georgia

Here are a few houses from the Gant Quarters neighborhood in Marietta.  This is a small representation of the homes here.  Many others have similar themes arranged in different combinations and there were some other looks not represented here.  All looked great.

Circa 1975

Circa 1974

Information I found said this home was built in 1998 but I believe it's incorrect and probably dates to the mid-70's like the others.

Circa 1971

Circa 1973

Train Depot - Groveland, Florida

122 Howey Road - Most recently used by a citrus company, I'm only guessing that this was originally a railroad depot as I've come across numerous others that were very similar to it.

Holiday Motel - Columbus, Ohio

4420 East Main Street - Circa 1953, some beautiful stonework and fun accents make this motel a nice diversion. 

An example of the stone work.

This is a wonderful tropical themed decoration, which seems a bit out of place in Ohio.  If I had to guess, it probably shields a bathroom window.

This view is off the side street that runs past the motel.

Multi-Family Housing - St. Petersburg, Florida

Beach Drive NE - Circa 1925.  As I spent several hours trying to track down the address and information I became increasingly frustrated.  I had recorded the address as being on 13th Avenue since that is the street that the front of the building faces but the actual address is for the more fashionable Beach Drive.  This is a practice that I've come across time and again and it never fails to irritate me.  Rant complete.
