The construction of the U.S. Federal Building, along the Thunder Bay River in Alpena, Michigan. This shows the front view looking toward the river. Taken from the southeast corner on June 14, 1912.
Notes:
This elegant example of Renaissance Revival architecture was constructed during 1911-1912. The Federal Building is executed in brick faced with smooth ashlar. A balustrade tops the modillioned cornice. The upper story contains small paired rectangular window openings, the first semicircular arched windows with compound arches, keystones, and Palladian fanlights. The main entrance is approached by a staircase and enriched by elaborate iron pilasters and entablature. The interior, especially the first floor, contains vaulted ceilings, Corinthian pilasters, and iron grill work. The Federal Building housed Alpena's post office from 1913 until the mid 1950s. 145 Water Street.
