Monday Window: Bamberg, Germany

A previous post featured the doors of Bamberg during a walking tour. Here are some windows in that charming city. Schlenkerla Brewery: Neue Residenz (former palace of ruling prince-bishops): Town Hall (Rathaus) with murals painted on the outside walls – the windows are not particularly interesting but the painting around them is: See more windows […]

For the photo challenges Ludwig Keck’s Monday Windows and Becky’s October Square, this post on Würzburg features the windows and lines of the city’s historic architecture.

Thursday Doors: Sigma Alpha Epsilon National Headquarters (OHC 2018)

During Open House Chicago 2018, we visited several sites in Evanston, including the national headquarters of the fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
