Mistaken<br>October 20, 2005

October 20, 2005

"It's a mistake" I heard as I was taking this shot.
The lovely lady went on to explain that the lovely art deco former movie theater of which I was photographing was built by mistake. Apparently the financiers thought they were building a theater in Westchester, New York, not my West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately the fate it would have surely met in Westchester it also met in West Chester, as it is now a putrid office for a local disreputable newspaper. All that is left of its beauty is the lovely facade, which unfortunately is just that.

Stunning details and textures! Fabulous light and shadows! Nor far from Downingtown! Used to live there, but missed this wonderful architectural detail!
