… but around 1961 the arched windows on the third floor were removed as part of a ‘renovation’ which has nearly destroyed the building’s integrity. It only gets worse as you go inside. Luckily there is an effort to treat this gem in downtown Lexington a little better. I was engaged to document the exterior in both rectified photography and line drawing. At present I am still working on the drawings, but I’ve pretty much wrapped up the rectified photography.
