A Mystery Built with Cape Ann Granite

This image has me stumped. Found in a large collection of architectural photographs showing Rockport-Cape Ann Granite in buildings across the United States, I cannot identify where or what this building is. Anyone know of it?

Thanks, Les

  1. Les, I’ve seen that building or, another picture of it. Can’t place it off hand but, will see if I can find and ID it and let you know if you do.

    I have a question for you. Fort Sumter, was designed as part of a defensive system for Charleston Harbor in So. Carolina. Plans were drawn in 1827, and construction began two years later. Located on a man-made island of sea shells and granite from northern quarries, it was a pentagonal structure, fifty feet high, with walls eight to twelve feet thick. Was Cape Ann granite used in building it?

  2. You’ve probably already figured this out as I have just stumbled across this post in April 2017 but I found an image that matches it is Philadelphia City Hall.
