So Much to See

Next: So Much to See #2

I propose that if we took the time to look more closely at all the things around us each day, we would be the richer for it. So here is what I propose to do:I cropped a picture I took to show a small and hopefully not easily recognizable portion.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to figure out what or where it is. At regular intervals, probably once a day, I'll expand what the image shows or provide a hint, until someone correctly identifies it. If it is a foolish idea, I'll be flamed in comments--if indeed there are any at all. It is just a silly little idea, anyway. I hope you'll spend a little more time each day paying attention to the many interesting things around you.

If you spend much time driving (or taking the T) around Lawrence you will surely be able to see this. Here is the next image:

And here is a short history of the Castle Tea Room.

What a wonderfully, creative idea, Dave! Sounds like a lot of fun. Let me venture the first guess: It looks like something KU. Is it part of the KU History Museum? Hmmm....

It looks like the window of the men's room on the second floor of the Douglas Couty Courthouse.

I think you'll get a lot of guesses on this one. I agree that it looks like something KU

Well, I don't know if geek is Specifically Correct, but I think he is Generally Correct. That looks like a window on the Douglas County Courthouse.
