In 2008 the Madison Brass Works building was not what many other people would call attractive. Well, you know the rest. I spent considerable time entranced by this window that July.

My camera has visited this drainpipe and environs for three years running. They haven’t changed much from last year (see the fifth photograph down) except for the displacement of a few bricks and the loss of more white paint. And except for the subsequently missing graffiti sticker (see the sixth and seventh photos down), they didn’t look much different in 2016 either. Well, there’s always next year.

You may have noted the siding (for want of a better word) on the old Apollo ticket booth in yesterday’s post. The same material, mostly without the swirling agate design, clads the walls of the building’s facade. Here’s a close-up view of some of the vitrolite tiles on the booth.

Oberlin’s Apollo Theater was renovated a few years ago, and the old ticket window is no longer in use. Now you buy your ticket inside, at the new concession stand, a less aesthetically pleasing experience but a warmer one, welcome in Oberlin’s often-cold winters. The second photograph shows the whole ticket booth.
