The front wall of this building that apparently housed an art gallery at some time in the past was left for architectural interesting, or the developers had just not gotten around to demolishing it at the point that I was there. The rest of the building was in piles of rubble behind this wall, so I’m guessing, they just hadn’t knocked it down yet. What caught my eye were several elements. First was the “stepped” line of the top of the wall. Then, the arched openings above the entry door seemed very graceful. And finally, the iron bars that still covered the front of the wall. This was found on a side street in the city of Jerome, Arizona.

Really nice seeing what is (or was) left of this building. I know that in Jerome there was the remains of the Bartlett Hotel, which I believe was a historic landmark, although most of the building was gone. Maybe it is the same for this beautiful facade.
Interesting, and even in its current (or then) state of disrepair, beautiful facade. Very Spanish colonial architectural elements. Let's hope Terry's surmise is a correct one, and it was saved to grace another building.
