The subject for the Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post is windows. Since joining the ‘Thursday Doors’ crowd, I’ve stepped up my efforts to look for doors and also windows and during a recent trip to Marion, Illinois, we discovered several of both that were worth a shot or two. This was our first visit to Marion and we spent one morning looking around the Tower Square Plaza area where there was a mix of new buildings along with several old places that looked like they’d seen better days.
This was certainly true of the building that once housed The Marion Daily Republican newspaper. I noticed that the sparrows had found a conveniently broken window frame, giving them access to the interior.
The windows at the Lewis building and the former Sheriff’s residence, now home to the Williamson County Historical Society Jail Museum and Library, are in better shape.
Part of our trip to Marion included a visit to Mandala Gardens, more of which I will write about in a future post.
