A View From Western Maryland

    

City Hall at 6:30 In The Morning

  


The City Hall for Cumberland, MD was built between 1911 and 1912 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There you can see a photo of what the building looked like before the greenery took over. It is a 7-by7-bay, two-story, stone-faced, neo-classical structure. It features an irregular corner, into which the architect has recessed a curving bay; the upper window in this curving bay has been filled with glass block. (Information was taken from the City Hall Wikipedia page.)

I created this image one Saturday morning, at 6:30 AM, while waiting for a local Barber Shop to open. I enjoy getting up that early, especially when it isn’t to do so for going to work, and downtown Cumberland at that time is nice and quiet with very few people moving around. It is a good time for taking photographs around town.

Just like this one…
