We left Minnesota at lunchtime and have been traveling all day. We should be home late tomorrow (Friday), but I probably won't blog again until Saturday.
I was finally able to upload my interior shots of the National Farmers' Bank. The bank lobby is not large enough to get wide-angle shots of the murals and windows, so these photos look a little choppy, but they'll still give you a taste of the phenomenal details and colors. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Here's a corner of the ceiling. The stained-glass skylight is washed out here, but you'll see it in the next photo.
Here's the skylight. My husband did a fairly dramatic backbend to get this shot.
I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that this incredible building was designed to house a small-town bank.
As depicted in this 100-year-old mural, southern Minnesota is still farm country.
Here's one of the arched windows from inside. Pretty, huh?
