Cigar Factory with Palm

This former cigar factory in Ybor City,
Tampa, Florida,
has been converted to office space.
Attractive in the most literal sense:
Shape and shadow of the arch detail above the windows,
brickwork "ledge" below second-story windows,
neatly painted crown detail across the top.
Note the iron hinges on either side of each window;
one lonely pair of shutters remains to explain and represent.

Taken on 2 August 2010.
