Astoria Column

Newer Older

The Astoria Column is one of my favorite landmarks - the detail is incredible (view the large size to read all the way up), and you can't beat the location looking out across to the Pacific. It's constructed of reinforced concrete and the artwork is in the sgraffito method.
