The Queen of Capitol Street, Part 2

This great old Queen Anne Victorian building was originally the Scott Bros. Drug Store a hundred years ago. Now is the Bailey & Glasser Law Firm. The lawyers have been good stewards of the property and it looks great now. I remember in the 60s and 70s when it was all covered by crappy modern false fronts.

On my old blog, I posted a photo taken of me and three of my high school friends at the soda fountain of Scott's back in 1957, I think. They had the greatest marble soda fountain ever!

I have looked many times for a shot that would capture this building. I guess I focused too much on the overall scene because your close ups tell the story much better than my overall shots ever did.
Really nice!

Clayton... when the building was first restored and the Charleston Streetscape project was new, I got some nice shots of the building... so you could see the entire front facade. But now that the Streetscape trees are so large, there's no way to get anything like a full view of the building. I'm beginning to wonder if it's time to take out a few trees. I like trees, but I like architecture too. (This also goes for the Capitol grounds)
