Happy 2015!

‘Sentinel & Museum’..taken on the last cold day of the old year. The Whatcom Museum of History & Art building was erected in 1892 and designed in the late Victorian style by Alfred Lee, a local architect who utilized red brick & Chukanut Sandstone. The design itself was modeled almost exactly like the second Saginaw County Courthouse in Saginaw, Michigan, which was destroyed in 1971. Thanks for droppin’ by today and best to all for 2015! bb >*<
