Colette, Wendy, Ed, Terry, Kristi, and Stan - Thank you very much for taking your time to write your nice notes! This staircase is in the most beautiful library of UW in Seattle and every time I am there I cannot resist taking another photo of it. It has this special touch of those classical architectural beauties.
Once again thank you!
Monika
