As much work as Paducah (KY) has done to renovate downtown, this building, more than any other in my mind, displays the true state of this area. There is an old-style class and beauty that has fallen into disrepair with seemingly little interest in truly cleaning things up.
Don't get me wrong. I love a lot of what has been done downtown, but I just feel that much of it is superficial. There are opportunities here that are generally ignored for reasons I simply do not understand. Being the cynic that I am, I have my suspicions on why that is.
At any rate, here is a shot from this past weekend. I hope you like it.
