Roving Rube


June 22, 2003

Gilded Beasts , 57W. 57th Street












This building is perhaps best known as the place where the Rube goes to the dentist.

However, since he always enters the building from 57th St., he never happened to notice these monsters, which are above the Seventh Ave. entrance (see 3-jpg). Until today, when he followed the trail of gilding around the corner to see what else he could photograph for this series.

There are also medallions (2-jpg) which feature U.S. presidents -- one variant looks much like the George Washington profile on a quarter.
