The Frankish Building and others built in small towns across America at the turn of the 20th century were, in effect, a celebration both of what people of the time considered progress, and of man's ability to shape his surroundings.

1. How does your sketch of the Frankish Building differ from the images above? Were you able to visualize the building as it exists or did the written descriptions lead you to expect a more imposing and fancier building?

2. Identify the rusticated quoins, lintels, cornice, and brackets of the Frankish Building.

3. What are your impressions of the Frankish Building?

* The images on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high resolution version of Photo 2a and Photo 2b, but be aware that the each file will take as much as 45 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
