Architectural Detail - Bittersweet Building

This is the roof line of the Bittersweet Building, showing the ornate details created back in the 1800's. This post shows the whole building. I'm not sure exactly what year it was built, but it was the only Market St. structure to survive the 1877 fire. The second picture on this page, shows what it looked like just after completion, with four tall chimneys that don't exist anymore. Taken August 25th, 2008. (click for larger view)
