Boulder County Courthouse, Colorado

Boulder County Courthouse
Location:  Boulder, Colorado, USA

This is the Boulder County Courthouse, in Boulder, Colorado.   It is known around town as the "old" courthouse, but it is not the original court building in Boulder.  The original courthouse was built in the 1880s, but it was destroyed by a fire in 1932.  This courthouse building replaced the original one.

 According to the Boulder County Web site:
...The replacement building, designed to project the image of a progressive area with emphasis on the then-current art deco style, was built on the same site and dedicated on May 7, 1934.  Two wings were added to the Courthouse in 1962, bringing the Courthouse to its present-day form.
I photographed this building yesterday.  Look at that sunny, crystal-clear blue sky.  Were it not for the bare branches on the trees, you might think it was a summer day!

I like the architecture of this old building. Sort of a Spanish style? The blue sky is inviting too. We see so little of it this time of year.

The blue sky has been glorious since we arrived in Colorado more than a week ago -- until yesterday when some snow clouds finally rolled in. So it goes...
