Charleston, West Virginia

I've fallen behind on my images, I'll attempt to catch up soon.  With this image from the visit to Charleston awhile back, we revisited the wonderful but dreadful keystone by the sculptor Milton Horn.  Age seems to make it more sorrowful.  I first posted a picture of it two years ago this month (you can see it here) which is when I first attempted to learn a bit about Mr. Horn.  I now understand the keystone was commission and installed in the latter half of the 1960s when an addition to the 1918 Kanawha Banking and Trust Building was build just to the south and adjacent to the original structure.  The original structure is 12-story Neo-Classical Revival skyscraper, contributing to an interesting neighborhood in the city that is composed of the bookstore and numerous restaurant.
