#22 Flatiron

Chester, Connecticut USA

There is a bit of a coincidence to this photo. Wednesday, my wife and I were on our way to Gillette Castle for me to get some photos for the July Challenge and I spotted this building in Chester, a little town on the Connecticut River. I did not know the name for this type of architecture. Yesterday I was commenting and ran across "Flatiron Building" by Michael Parkinson and now I know. :) Thanks Michael. For his photo:

This is wonderful, Frank! I need to get downtown to photograph the Rochester Flatiron Building. This has so much more character though. Wonderful find!

I started a Flatiron thread in the Show & Tell section. I would be honoured if you join me.

Fabulous shot, sort of reminds me of the shape of a tram with the date at the top like that! v

Love this old building. Too bad the power lines were in the way. But, it still is a great shot. Love it in B&W. Would love to go inside.

Cool perspective and great tones and and details.

Thanks Frank, this place has character and unless Chester has two of them the following link probably applies.
All those power and communication lines that Europe, to a large degree, has placed under ground, drive me to distraction. I'll add you to the list.

I like all the lines on the raod and in the air, v
