Details of a facade

This house was built 1900 (it's written below the window when you click on the image to enlarge it) and the decorations you see are all from that time. Also included in this facade decoration is Wiesbaden's coat-of-arms: yellow/golden "fleurs-de-lys" (stylized lilies) on blue background.

My City is barely celebrating its 50th anniversary. We don't have any houses that have been around as long as this.

I love old buildings, they're beautiful and it's always interesting to know their history.

That's a gorgeous building. And the windows are so clean!
(I would notice that - I'm in the middle of spring cleaning - between rainstorms, lol)
