Selma City Hall
I'm celebrating the one-month anniversary of Selma, Ala. Daily Photo Blog with a picture of City Hall. The modern building offers a bit of Old South flavor with its wrought-iron trim. The municipal complex was built on the site of the old Hotel Albert (view photo here), which was modeled after the Doges Palace in Venice, Italy. The hotel was demolished in the 1960s when funds could not be raised to save it. Since then, Selmians vowed to save their valuable historic structures if at all possible. Looking up the street on this very glary day, is downtown Selma with the Pettus Bridge in the extreme background.
