May’s penultimate Architeaser was one of the helmeted heads which overlook doors to the Pulaski County Courthouse. Like the May 29 Genies and Union Life Building, the Courthouse and helmeted heads were the brainchild of George R. Mann. The courthouse was an expansion of the original 1880s courthouse which this adjoins. Mann did not try to duplicate the architecture of the original structure but instead built an impressive neo-classical “governmental” building which has a more timeless look than the original structure.
Here is today’s Architeaser.
