Once you notice them, they are everywhere.  Columns, with varied capitals.  Corinthian, Doric, Ionic, even some they didn’t teach you in elementary school.  I love these old-time building facades, with their heavy, overdone, enthusiastic quality.

This one is the base of the Edison Building, on Adams.  The whole building is covered with patterned brick and stone, elaborate arches and columns, even some fancy stone medallions up top.
