It's a handsome building with a good-looking metal roof. But the left window on the second floor looks like it's winking. What's that all about?

That would make a cool haunted house.

Looks like a nice old place. Does it have indoor plumbing, if the place is full of lawyers theres alot of #@&* floating around the place.

There must be a good lawyer joke in there somewhere, but let's just say nice house, very nice capture!

Jarart said...

It's a great looking house. It should have a family living in it.

Commercial Building? The structure looks really nice built. Nice perspective!

@ Your EG Tour Guide: Nice observation :-)

They are lawyers, EG, lawyers! That's their take on life. LOL MB

Not a great description for a fine building: you make it sound like 'is full of rats'...

A neat building.

Have you got a widget on your blog that connects to something with flash.quantserve ? - when trying to scroll down your blog it suddenly blanked out on me and I had to refresh - the problem seems to be connected with flash.quantserve or something very similar - you might want to check it out.

In reference to EG, if the building's full of lawyers, they just pulled off another fast one. I do like tha roof too.

@ Jarat - Many of these older homes have been restored and are now used for commercial purposes...lawyers, doctors, restaurants, etc.

I think I'm going to buy that place, kick out the lawyers and move in with my family. Then one could say the house is loaded with Leif! And then we could be neighbors, Jacob Meister!

This place would fit very comfortably up here in New England.

It looks like a nice place to work.
Lawyers aren't so bad - my family is full of them! ;-)

Jacob said...

@ Brattcat - Can we send the lawyers, too? ;-)

Oh, I love it!! I have a thing for old houses. This is fabulous! Minus the lawyers, of course. ;)

It is a beautiful old house...

A beautiful building. Maybe all lawyers aren't scoundrels.

Lois said...

It's nice when these old houses get restored and used again. This one is a beauty!

cieldequimper said...

Ummm... What's wrong with lawyers? ;-)

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - Not a thing.

Marie said...

Beautiful house. I like the text of your post today, Jacob..... :-)) People have the same opinion about lawyers all over the world.

Pretty neat house! Seems like lawyers are not really popular among your commentators. (; I think lawyers are not better or worse than any other member of our society. As usual, there are good and bad ones.

Jacob said...

@ Buenos Aires - You're right, of course.

Oh, that is a wonderful building and the surrounding seems to be nice too.
