I love superfluous architectural details (you know I do) - those flourishes that seem to have no structural significance, but are there simply for the sake of entertaining the eye. This one's above the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at 18 S. Fair Oaks in Old Town Pasadena.
I've searched the whole web over for more information on this building, but haven't found it. If you know anything, please share.
I noticed during my research that there's an OldTownPasadena.com and an OldTownPasadena.org. Surely they're not competitors? I'm so confused. Hey, but the org folks are going to have a blog. I look forward to that. And they put me on their blogroll! I am their fan.
