The Taylor County page (courthouse #69) is now updated and contains many new photographs. Here's a view of the east facade with the recently completed building for prisoner drop-off and pick-up in the foreground.
Leaving Colorado City I drove south on Highway 163 through beautiful, if desolate country, to Sterling City, seat of Sterling County. Here's a nicely sited ranch house, a few miles north of Sterling City.
I arrived back at the Brannan's house in time for Clark and me to visit the Abilene Public Library in search of information on the architect David S. Castle. We were pleased to find a number of documents, including many press clippings about David Castle. I'm doing research on his life and practice in Abilene, where he lived and was an active architect from 1914 until his death in 1956. He designed seven Texas courthouses, along with an impressive portfolio of residential and commercial buildings. Here are some examples found in Abilene.
