Monuments

 I collected some pictures of buildings I like. Above, my place of work on an evening of full moon. Below, Duval Street in monochrome:
This is the county office block  known as the Gato Building on Simonton Street. It's named for the Gato Family that built it as a cigar factory before they moved to Tampa when Key West got too expensive for their business...an old story still relevant.
The venerable fire station on Grinnell Street. It's really the Firehouse Museum and well worth a visit.
The new Seven Fish Restaurant Building. Deemed compatible with old town architecture by the guardians of classic Key West architecture.
 And the Seven Mile Bridge, not exactly a building but human construction nevertheless...
