Big Business



The Chrysler Building, 1930, architect William Van Alen, New York.

An homage to all things modern, the tallest building (until the Empire State eclipsed it one year later), decorated with hubcaps, hood ornaments and steel so shiny it looks like chrome. It remains an Art Deco icon.

Thank you, I appreciate the kind words. I keep the images at low res on purpose, since I do not have rights to the images. The links are there so you will know where I got the images from.
