    Man, I'd love to hear THAT instrument!

    How in the world do they get it from venue to venue? That's taller than the length of my full sized truck!

    I remember the first time I rode in one of those cars back in the 90s. it was the first time I experienced wicked, scary, uncontrolled (to me, bc I was the passenger and behind the service center on a narrow car lot) acceleration and the same in braking, all in less than 8 seconds. I'm not easily scared in vehicles, but I was in this thing.

    side note - those of you with fast(ish) cars who think dealer techs don't dog your cars when you're in for maintenance? you're/we're deluding your/ourselves lol

    Don't really know. What I do know is that this is one of the most (to me) iconic buildings I know of. Very unique and this was the first shot of it under construction that I had ever seen. I thought it was cool, so I shared it with the forum.

    Mind you -- I wouldn't admit this just anywhere... but I had to read this one several times. Then I laughed loudly enough that it caught Mrs. H's attention*. :#

    Here are additional looks for you regarding flatiron buildings.

    A post card Time Square early 1900's which is the flatiron building in your post.

    Several cities have flatiron buildings including Atlanta.

    When most people hear the name Flatiron building, they immediately imagine the iconic 22-story skyscraper in New York City. However another architect, Daniel Burnham and Company, built the Flatiron building in Atlanta four years before its New York look-alike. It is said that the Atlanta skyscraper was the first flatiron building in the United States.

    The Flatiron building was built across what is now Woodruff park in 1897, the date that is carved over the main Peachtree Street entrance. When it was erected the Flatiron building was the tallest skyscraper in Atlanta. Today its younger neighbors dwarf it, yet it is crowned as the oldest building in Atlanta.

    The Flatiron building has been born again with a new name, FlatironCity. FlatironCity has become the first building of its kind in the downtown Atlanta area; it has partnered with Microsoft to create a Microsoft Innovation Center

    I heard about Elton's public cry tantrum yesterday, I think it was. I was out in my cottage where I have his records and CDs.

    You know what my first thought was?......yup. >:)

    I've yet to do it though. :/

    I did want to play "All The Young Girls Love Alice" before I trashed them.
