Atlantic Screw Works

There was just something about this facade that I liked.

Hmmm. And here I thought you were just screwing with me again. ;-) Then I saw the reflections. Nice.

Re crepe myrtles: I'm thinking they are blooming a bit late this year. We had a number in our yard at our old Ocala house. The blossoms come in a variety of colors. You can keep them trimmed as bushes, or, like most everything else in Florida, leave 'em go and they grow into great big trees!

Hope you have a nice weekend. I think I might play a little golf!

That's a good looking facade! They don't make 'em like that anymore. Too bad, though, the windows were replaced with such modern looking ones.

Hard to believe how fast time flows!
Superb shot.
Have a nice weekend, Jack!

Hahaha! Jack, Jacob said exactly what I was thinking!! Great old building.

Leif Hagen said...

I like the brick facade, too! I wonder what that neighborhood looked like back in 1877?!
Bon weekend

The building looks in very good shape and well-maintained. Are the windows at the top part of a building addition or do they belong to a building behind this one? I couldn't quite make it out, even after I maxed the photo.

I like the old buildings with their names carved in the clay. The cloud reflections are a bonus.

Lynette said...

Great one, Jack!

Beautiful building and reflection. That old red brick sets off that reflection, love the angle you captured.

Jack, I don't think I have found a bar that serves bad drinks.....

Sharon said...

This looks like an old factory building that has been nicely restored.

Well, the name of the building gave me a great wake-up giggle and I wondered what you were up to today. But then, I too, saw the reflections!! And they are great! It's a lovely old building, glad they didn't change the name when they were restoring it -- don't see many of those anymore! Have a great weekend, Jack!

The contrast between the old red wall and the modern part behind is very interesting; The reflected clouds add a little touch of nostalgy.

Birdman said...

... just make sure you don't 'screw the works'. hahaha

Very nice contrast here between the bricks and glass.

Christina Klas said...

The old and the new all tied up in one building. Very interesting architecture!

JM said...

I like this fa├žade very much, Jack! And it's always great to see old buildings adapted to current needs instead of being torn down.

Lois said...

It is a beautiful old building. I love that brick!

I like how the blue of the sky appears in the glass... Very nice shot !

Clueless in Boston said...

You ever notice on old buildings how they had the company name embedded in the building? I guess they planned on being there forever. You don't see anything like that much anymore. And if they did they would probably add a "YOU" between the second and third words. :)

RedPat said...

Great old building - I love the carving in the brickwork! And another of your super reflections.

Ms. Becky said...

I wish they still made buildings like this. it's beautiful. great reflections too.

Randy said...

That really is amazing! Great shot!

Mo said...

I can see why you like this building

Cindy said...

Excellent shot of a great old building. I wonder what The dates 1887-1902 mean. With one date I would assume it was when the building was built- but two with a hyphen is something I would expect to see on a gravestone.

Thye have done a successful job of retaining the facade and updating the building. Interesting point that 'Clueless' made. It's true they don't seem to carve company names in stone anymore.
