Simple Elegance of Mystic No. 160


Old areas in towns often have interesting objects to photograph. In a small western Illinois town near the Mississippi River is a tiny brick building with one door and a two globe sign.


Weathering of masonic symbols may be nothing new but generally their building structures last a long time. At a related mason structure just a few weeks ago (Scottish Rite Temple) the public gathered for a post St. Patrick's Day party. That building is filled with symbology, columns, vaulted ceilings, stonework, etc. This building in comparison stands in stark contrast with its simple design and fading globe identifiers. Know that.
