Another Ohio Courthouse
When I was younger, I spent 10 plus years living in a camper, wandering around the country. I always preferred back roads and small towns, and the ones I visited in the mid-west were full of buildings like this. Not just courthouses, but schools, libraries, hospitals and every other type of substantial public building. I guess Henry Hobson Richardson had a huge influence, even if his many imitators never earned the same fame and recognition. This courthouse was designed by the firm of LaBelle & French of Marion, Indiana.
Never mailed, published by "The Griswold Co., Warren, O." I'm always amazed by how many American postcards, like this one, were printed in Germany.
