Facade Detail, Southern Bell Telephone Company Building, Atlanta, GAby Wendy Darling
I’m a sucker for eagles. These ones, done in profile and about a story above the sidewalk, are great.
From Wikipedia:

It was designed for Southern Bell by Marye, Alger and Vinour, in an austere art deco style.

Note: Marye, Alger and Vinour also designed the Fox Theatre, which was originally designed as an elaborate Temple for the Atlanta Shriners.
