Kansas City Scarritt Building Ornate '1906' Sign: Black and White Architectural Photograph (DSC00597)Keith Dotson Photography
Black and white fine art photograph of the meticulously ornate Edwardian-style "1906" sign on the exterior of Kansas City's Scarritt Building. Ornate architectural elements like this were used to add character to the cold, new form of architecture known as skyscrapers, and are described as "Sullivanesque" after their most ardent creator, Chicago architect Louis Sullivan. This one reflects the hallmarks of its era, round globes and stylized compasses reflecting empire, success, and manifest destiny. The Scarritt Building was designed by Root and Siemens.
