Monthly Theme Day - Chimneys

A Schenectady landmark since 1887, this building was built by George Westinghouse up on Broadway hill for his mother, who refused to leave her downtown State Street home so she could be closer to social life.  Since the late 1920s, the building has been the site of the Bond Funeral Home.  They maintain the historic building and grounds immaculately.

It's the first of the month, and that means the City Daily Photo bloggers are posting photos based on a single theme.  This month, the theme is chimneys.  Do have a visit and see all the wonderful photos from around the world!  NOTE: the portal is down again; apparently still searching for a host.  Try this backup site instead:

  3. A lot of interesting angles to this building. What a gorgeous building!

  4. Very atmospheric and love the story behind it!


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
