Moving to another of the panels. Got to wonder what that owl is doing in the office :)

I love this. The owl is, I assume, one of those meant to scare off pigeons.

Fabulous animal motifs in the town hall’s gate. (For more building pics from this same photographer, see this photo set.)

Carved owl. Hoot hoot! Wider view of the bridge here.

I’ve spent a lot of time going through the LoC’s photo archives, which make available the Historic American Buildings Survey / Historic American Engineering Record photos. I urge you to check them out yourself!
Art Deco Hooters, Atlanta, Georgia

Another building I’ve wanted a shot of for quite a while. This little Deco building is overlooked mainly because it’s a Hooters. This is at Peachtree St. & International Blvd. in Downtown Atlanta. It was originally built in the 1920s as a car dealership.
Meanwhile, the plastic owl on the upper story window is one of several installed to, purportedly, keep pigeons from roosting in the vicinity. But it’s a Hooters hooter!
