There’s no shortage of old, interesting buildings in Exile, but this one may be my favorite. I adore the embellishments, but even more, I love the description of those embellishments. Ahem:
Construction began in 1926 and the building was completed in 1928. Sculptor Lee Lawrie created its decorative scheme, which features polychrome facades adorned with figures symbolizing attributes of insurance: the owl of wisdom, the dog of fidelity, the pelican of charity, the opossum of protection, and the squirrel of frugality.
So, should I change my tag to “More protective than your average Opossum”?
