Beaux Arts

From 2010 Blog
Keeping with yesterday's architectural theme, today's photo is another one of my favorite Norfolk Buildings. The former Norfolk Public Library on West Freemason Street is a good example of Beaux Arts Classicism. It was designed by Herbert D. Hale of Boston. The interior retains many of its original features including a central white marble staircase. Funded by a grant from Andrew Carnegie and completed in 1904, the building today has been restored for use as offices. Canon 40D, 1/40 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 200.
