Federal Public Building, Edmonton, Canadaby MyklR
I -love- the door handles!
From Flickr:


A re-take of a picture I made a while ago… The Federal Public Building is an Art Deco architectural gem. The exterior has solid, grounded Art Deco classic appeal, and the ornamentation inside reflects the same. Soon, the provincial government will begin a massive restoration of this beautiful piece of history.
Edmonton is North America’s Northernmost city with a population greater than 1 million people. On the summer solstice (June 20), there is only a couple of hours of darkness overnight.
