Walking Tour of Buffalo 2006: The Lost World

Stanislaw Lem, RIP

A Spanish-American War statue, with the Electric Building in the background

The inside of the Electric Building is closed for renovations but I snuck a pic of the lobby

The inside of the Ellicott Square building, once the largest office building in the world.

Floor detail

Door detail

Entrance detail. So many bloody details . . .

The Guaranty Building was one of the world's first skyscrapers. On this day I finally decided to go inside.

Outside, some terra cotta patterns

Inside, the cafe

Stairs. On the left are the elevator cages, which didn't come out well in the next picture

More outdoors details

County Hall security took my camera so I couldn't get any indoors pictures here. This is where the public viewed President McKinley when he died. When struck by lightning, this clock tower conducts over 1.21 jigowatts of electricity.
