N… New Hampshire
Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, Londonderry, New Hampshire
Huh! Have never come across this one before. Did not guess it existed.
Aviation Museum of New Hampshire in Londonderry. You’ll find airplane models, photographs and memorabilia of Granite State’s history in the air. The museum is housed in the original Art Deco terminal building built in 1937.

Another nice one from Sid Penance. This from from the interior. For a full set of photos of this building, click over here. One from that set:
Durham Museum, Omaha, Nebraska
by DMR Studios
Extraordinary building not only for its survival but its gorgeous present state. Compare this to Buffalo Central Terminal.
The Durham Museum interior in Omaha, Nebraska. Designed in the late 1920’s by Gilbert Stanley Underwood, this beautiful art deco station was completed in 1931. Commissioned by Union Pacific, it served as the Union Station on 10th Street in downtown Omaha for 40 years, until 1971 when Congress established the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, now Amtrak, to handle all railroad passenger travel. The ceiling displays themes and elements of the great western plains culture.

City Hall, Oslo, Norway
Photo by Alison Crawford
Officially opened in 1950 but begun in the early 1930s.
Oslo City Hall (Norwegian: Oslo rådhus) houses the city council, city administration, and art studios and galleries. The construction started in 1931, but was paused by the outbreak of World War II, before the official inauguration in 1950. Its characteristic architecture, artworks and the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, held on 10 December, makes it one of Oslo’s most famous buildings. It was designed by Arnstein Arneberg and Magnus Poulsson. The roof of the eastern tower has a 49-bell carillon which plays every hour. It is situated in Pipervika in central downtown Oslo. The area was completely renovated and rebuilt to make room for the new city hall, back in the late 1920s. In June 2005 it was named Oslo’s “Structure of the Century”, with 30.4% of the votes.
Here’s a wider view of the complex:

Beautiful corner theater in Auckland.
Radio Kootwijk, Apeldorn, The Netherlands
by Adriaan Wormgoor
Beautiful radio station, named elsewhere as a “cathedral” of radio.
This is Radio Kootwijk, an oddly situated 1920 art deco building right in the center of a nature area. Back in the day it was the only place in The Netherlands where you could communicate directly with Indonesia, a Dutch colony at the time.

Munich, which BTW I love, isn’t really a Deco city, but it does have some nice Jugendstil (Art Nouveau), which at times are a bit similar to Deco. I’m sure you can imagine this design reworked into something Deco.

There’s a whole lot of Deco in Mumbai (previously known as Bombay) and this I think is an especially nice example.
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Fascinating Deco apartment building in Montreal. It’s got this pointed arch and upward thrust that reminds me of some kind of gothic fireplace, but then it has the oval balconies.
I would say it’s unique, but look at this building, also in Montreal, documented by the same photographer:
And here’s another Montreal apartment building, a little different, but still unusual compared with what I’ve seen of the world’s apartments from the era.
And yes, I did just post three things from one place, but I couldn’t decide!
