There are lots of recognizable buildings in this photo. in the lower left is the main Phoenix Library. Just beyond the library, where the road splits there is the deck park, on top of a sunken stretch of Interstate 10. Thank goodness this massive highway was placed below ground cutting across central Phoenix.
Going farther down Central Avenue, on the right, just before the copper colored high rise, there is a grey mid-rise building with a tall antenna on top. That is the Westward Ho, which at one time was the tallest building between Texas and Los Angeles. It used to be a hotel, and is now a senior citizens home.
The tall building on the right is Phoenix City Hall. The building with the widest facade in the center of the Photo is the headquarters of the Freeport McMoran mining company, which acquired Phelps Dodge Copper Co. several years ago. The wide tan building on the left is the new Sheraton Hotel.
This week we are showing photos of the Canadian Thanksgiving at a lodge on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
