The Museum of Art and History built between 1903 and 1910.



Swiss banking at its best.



Oxymoron?

I love seeing all of this vintage architecture! Nothing like this around here. Like Judy said -- keep 'em comin'. :)

That museum building is fantastic! That edging along the roof line! The sphinxess is interesting, for sure!

Poor girl, she just waited too long for her coffee...or they messed up the order...or she was shocked to stone by the ridiculous price for a Pumpkin Latte (and yet, I still love it!)

Beautiful photos of Geneva - I like the Swiss Banking at it's best.

Such a beautiful bulding! One of the best things about Europe is all the history.
Also glad to read you may attempt to paint some furniture!! Let me know if you end up trying it out. I'd love to see your results!

I love the shot of the bank with all of the scooters in front. I don't know about that sculpture, she looks like a caffeine addict to me. Have a wonderful day!

I looked at all your recent posts finally and really enjoyed the Geneva photos, Swedish marble and all. I often miss the old architecture that I grew up with, so this was a treat for me.--Inger

P.s. I agree - Salt and a spoon is the best way to enjoy an avocado!
