Our thanks to Bob Jackson, President of Farmers and Mechanics
Federal for this wonderful period photo of the Monroe County
Courthouse, Bloomington, Indiana. nearing completion.
The Monroe County courthouse is a beautiful
Classical Revival building, a style which owes much to the Beaux-Arts
tradition and was a popular form of architecture for government
buildings in the early 20th century.
Mr. Jackson also gave a copy of the photo to the
Monroe County Historical Society and had one framed to hang in his
building as it looks today is shown (in very small images) at the top
of the official government website of Monroe County.
