Detail on top of the former Joske’s store in downtown San Antonio, Texas. I dearly loved this store and still lament it’s demise. The mall it is now attached to gutted the building, salvaged the lumber, and converted it into a retail complex. I haven’t been inside, but noticed this detail on top of the building on a quick trip downtown. I’ve never noticed it before – my eyes were always pulled to the grillwork. This is art!

The new retail complex probably won’t have this type of art detail.
No, I’m sure it won’t. At least they kept the outside of the store intact. Although that is not the original façade it is generally synonymous with the old store.
