A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida (Naples) and southwest Connecticut (Ridgefield) and New England and other places he goes.
I prefer the architecture of the old building.
I would also go for the older building.
I much prefer the older one.
A very common sight here too, Jack! That is a fine older building!
Both Minneapolis and St. Paul have rows of grand, huge, old homes, but these days most of them have become offices or taken over by institutions. At least the buildings have found a new life meaning they will be maintained for the future.
I always wonder what the original residents would make of it, when homes are converted to businesses.
I worked for a while in a beautiful old residence that had been converted like this. It made for some interestingly shaped offices but it was a very comfortable place to work. (And it had a beautiful front porch, come to think of it!)
Good they didn't replace the old building.
