Boy I wish I had started checking out lobbies sooner! I guess I didn’t because I’ve never really been into studying architecture other than to simple appreciate beautiful work. I’m so surprised when I walk into a building and see things like this dome overhead. Obviously you can’t see it from the street so it’s a wonderful treat to look up and be greeted with this.

This is in the building of 73 State Street Springfield, MA. From what I can find on the internet this used to be the United Electric Light Co. building. It appears to have been built in 1910-1911 in the Beaux-Art style of architecture (thank you google!!!).


I just got off the phone with my mom who gave me some tips on other historic buildings that have special details. So stay tuned folks!
