Hey Bobby. I can just bet this is one amazing place to visit if we are judging it from the outside. I always marvel at buildings like this and all the work that went into when we know they do not have the equipment we do today. A gorgeous structure and I had fun reading all about it. A wonderful story and a beautiful picture my friend.
Still in the 90's here. #10833156
