Nice representation of the moderne style.  A little unusual with columns in the entry – but they were unadorned, so the fit in fine.  The courthouse was full of moderne touches – the windows, the polished marble walls in the ceiling, the telephone box, the lights, the wood in the courtroom – all in all, a pleasant edifice.  Even outside – the embellishments of silver deco were a nice touch – though the silver seems to be fading.
