Men, Mules, And Bricks

Recently I had the amazing opportunity to visit a 100 year old building. This building was built with mainly two pieces of equipment; men and mules. Well; three if you count the bricks! All those bricks!!

The work that must have gone into this. Talk about blood, sweat, and tears! This is architecture at it’s most creative. The details that were hand built into this building are just beautiful.

My photos don’t even begin to show all the hard work those men put into this project.

Can you imaging walking around way up there in the air on those walls as it grew taller and taller?

The most amazing thing about this building is that, it is still in use today, and has remained in use throughout it’s 100 year life span.

I’ll just bet that it’s still standing in another 100 years.
