With Glorious Clouds Encompassed Round…

The title comes from a hymn/the otherwise ordinary street is in the Barrio Historico, looking toward the Tucson Mountains.

Courthouse View

img_6777-copy7-2.jpg

Old County Courthouse – its central courtyard – in the foreground, one of the City of Tucson office buildings on the right and the Unisource building on the left. A range of architectural styles spanning about 200 years. I wonder if it affects how we think, we who spend time in these cities, to have this kind of both architectural diversity and dissonance going on, like 3 different kinds of music playing at the same time.

Facade

This is the front door of the Arizona Historical Society Museum near the University of Arizona campus. What makes it notable is that the facade is from St. Augustine’s Cathedral, built in the mid 1800’s and ending its days ignominiously as a garage before being demolished.. This is the original central facade rescued from that building.

St. Augustine is one of Tucson’s patron saints. I will put up a photo of the newest version of St. Augustine’s Cathedral sometime soon.
