Art Deco: Brass Grill

One of my goals for 2008 is to explore some more corners of my city, areas that I'm not as familiar with. One of those areas is the downtown business district, where this lovely grill can be found - if you can sweet talk the doorman into letting you photograph it! This ornate Art Deco Grill is in the entrance lobby of the William-Oliver Building, built in 1930 by Pringle and Smith, 32 Peachtree St., Atlanta.

Thirty Frames has a great Flickr album set up with much better photos than mine of the building.

While my city is hardly known for being preservation minded, there are still some fine examples of early 20th century (and earlier) architecture around. More examples to come....
