On a roll with the Guardian Building here, so I am posting some photos from the year it was last restored – 2004. Shown here is the interior after completion.

This was during restoration – not too many chances to see the commerce lobby completely empty like this. Back then I carried mostly film equipment, and a 4 megapixel digital camera.

Louis Comfort Tiffany clock – one of the largest in the world.

There are a few mosaics on this building….lol
Then outside for a couple Parducci and Pewabic details.
