96. School

I was going to originally use my boys school for this topic, but last week we played a soccer game against the Central Bulldogs at their field.  I haven’t been to this school for years and forgot how gorgeous the architectual details were in this building.  It was the first all grade school in Omaha, Ne and then the first Highschool.  It dates back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s – for more info on this school go to:  http://www.ops.org/high/central/ABOUTCENTRAL/History/tabid/59/Default.aspx

  1. You’re right, Tammy! It’s a wonderful building! With that sky behind it, the colors are just so rich!

  2. Lovely architecture. I like a lot of modern architecture, but there is something so fitting about these classic structures for schools.

  3. What an amazing building – I would be proud to attend. Excellent photo.

  4. Hi!
    Great for the theme! I love old buildings, they so much character! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great evening!

  5. Beautiful photo-and look at those clouds!

  6. What was it like attending that school back in the late 1800, Tammy, no wonder you forgot about it, it was a long time ago “Old Girl” LOL

  7. What a gorgeous high school! I’d love to see what the inside looks like! Great job processing too!

  8. Wonderful architecture – most schools built since the 1960’s look pretty much alike. A great find.

  9. A wonderful shot – what a magnificent building. I bet it’s interesting inside too.

  10. A nice change from today’s oversized box-like high schools. We have a couple of old, stately high schools here in my town. They sure knew how to build them back then!

  11. IMpressive structure, especially for a high school! Great shot, too.

  12. Gosh, that is a gorgeous piece of architecture! I would not have guessed it to be a school. Here, they are considering closing our local high school and its only about 40 years old. They say its in disrepair….

  13. A wonderful building! Perfect for the theme!

  14. Wonderful building with impressive structure!
    Great shot 🙂

  15. Great shot Tammy! We got caught in a Hail Storm near that school one day so I can identify with your other storm pic.

  16. The architecture is beautiful for sure, and what great lighting and colours.

  17. wow that’s a huge school. Great capture

  18. Wow, I would have guessed this to be a courthouse. I love the color, is that SOOC or did you do some editing?

  19. It is an imposing building, great shot – especially the light. I wonder if the maintenance is a horror…

  20. Beautiful building!!! So regal looking! That;s a BIG school for way back then.

  21. School? Very cool. Looks like it should be a museum or art gallery or Govt offices of some sort. Love the detail…it is a gorgeous building!

  22. Great example of great architecture and a beautiful school. They don’t build them like this any more.

  23. Beautiful building, Tammy. Your angle was great and the amount of the building that you included was perfect.
