Lumber Exchange Chandelier - Lighting as Art

This is a glamour shot of a great chandelier in Minneapolis. It has been in this city since 1979, but first graced the Alan Temple in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1852, and was wired for electricity in 1927.

The chandelier hangs in the Lumber Exchange Building, the city's first skyscraper. It's full of great details including a gorgeous revolving door, a sweeping staircase, and even decorative elevators. Care to rent an office in this historic beauty?
