Texas State Capitol

The Texas State Capitol is one of those "Grand Old Buildings"

I love grand old buildings. I understand that 'old' is a relative term and to those of you reading this in Europe or Asia, or in virtually in any country but America the Texas Capitol building completed in 1888 may seem relatively 'new'. Regardless, even in the short span of 120 years the ability to create new buildings of carved granite has simply become too expensive. Today we create fabulous modern glass skinned buildings that while they are also often quite beautiful. They are never quite as grand.
