Hey, Look Up!

Is that a decorative lintel I spy?

Yep. You can find it on the 1931 building on Fifth and San Benito Streets that is now home to the Vault. It was originally built for the Bank of America.

Take 25 is participating in ABC Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Mrs. Nesbitt and her friends. Today is the letter L. To check out other L posts, please click here.


  1. Amazing what you find when you look up.

    Those stepping stones at Lealholm are still there - I've added a comment linking to a 2007 photo of them.

  2. love the "found" image!

  4. Lintel--what a clever choice. And a bit of a travel log too. Thanks for sharing such a fun post!!

  5. Lintel is a word not heard often. And surely the deco is something rarely seen, too. Great catch!

  6. Gerald, most definitely! :-)

    Roger, I think they're supposed to images of the grizzly bear and Mercury. The bear is a California symbol so that makes sense. Mercury?

    Gattina, this building has even more wonderful pieces of work.

    nonizamboni, I love your name!

    Tumblewords, thank you. :-)

  7. Honestly, i opened my encarta dictionary just to look for "lintel" word. Thanks for the word.

    Thanks for the ABC Wed comment too.
