This is my third entry for Debbie’s, Travel With Intent blog, One Word Sunday Challenge and her topic this week is Window. Unfortunately I couldn’t post it earlier since I was at work all day today. So here it is! I hope y’all enjoy.
This is a picture of the window in the bridal suite on the morning of my niece’s wedding in November 2017.
This is a picture of one of the windows in my room.
These are two pictures of different types of windows in India.
I took this picture the last time I visited Dallas back in 2017. Can y’all name why these windows are famous or should I really say infamous? The hint that I give is that the answer has to do with one of America’s most famous political families.
I took this picture one of the last visits that I made to Chicago which happens to be one of my favorite places in the world. The Chicago Cultural Center opened in 1897 and has been a popular tourist destination ever since. It’s where the mayor of Chicago welcomes the President and other leaders and diplomats when they visit Chicago.
One of the star attraction of the Chicago Cultural Center is the glass dome. The 38 feet diameter dome was cut in the shape of fish scales to give it a unique look. At the very top of the window are the twelve zodiac signs. Hanging down from the middle is a large, spherical glass chandelier. The window and chandelier were made by the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company of New York and the supporting frame was made by Chicago Ornamental Iron Company.
Over time the dome began to wear which forced the city of Chicago to restore it in 2008. Now, it looks like it did back in 1897.
