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.
