Three different eras of architecture: 1920's, 60's/70's, and modern. One of the things I like about downtown Davenport is the mixture of buildings. Mississippi Plaza, the Figge, and the skybridge gave it that bit of steel and glass modernism that it needed.


Don't forget the Taste of the Quad Cities in Moline. Its not exactly a beautiful day for it, but I'm still going to try and make it over there for lunch.

When will the clocks on the bank be fixed? Tacky.

QCI you must have studied architecture... 1920s is definitely a style and modern happened after the 60s/70s...

Sorry. Still think the Figge looks like a giant block of salt. And to what style would you attribute the lovely parking decks?

I've never claimed to be an architecture expert.

10:15, do you remember what the old parking ramps looked like? I think we're at least moving in the right direction.
