Bad Photography Monday: Hazleton

I have to level with you.  I never liked Hazleton City Hall.  It always reminded me of a big, nondescript, square rock.

Things changed recently.  I was passing by, on a sunny morning.  The building was lit perfectly, so I grabbed my camera for a few shots.

When I got home and loaded the pictures into my computer, my opinion of the building changed.  I had the opportunity to really take a good look, examine the detail, see how it stands out against a brilliant blue sky.

I've done a complete turnaround.  It's a handsome structure.

A friend and noted Hazleton area historian e-mailed me what you see below.  I'm not sure of the time it depicts, but as you can see, the building once had a bell tower.
