Greetings Barbara; Excellent capture ! Love the green windows in the modern building !steve
Thank you Steve!! We tend to give names to our buildings here and that one is known as the Emerald Palace.
Contrast is great, and shows the ugliness of the new.

Thank goodness that Historic Preservation preserved the old. Aren’t they beautiful. Great shot Barbara. Fav! There’s a Historic Buildings group here, not sure of the name. But if you have info on the buildings, they would probably love this image.
Thank you so much Fran! Actually, prior to the 1970’s this area was completely neglected. It was the Skid Row part of Sacramento. Luckily someone realized what a gem they had there.
You are so lucky that they preserve heritage buildings. Our country is just awful on that score.
Hi Al! We are’nt always so good at that. This was skid row for many years and is now a thriving visitor attraction.
