Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

At one time, the stone and gabled building in the foreground used to be one of Phoenix’s fine restaurants. Many years ago, the property was sold and then incorporated into this office complex. The only saving grace, was that they didn’t tear down the original structure, they just built the office buildings behind it and then attached the two.
When I first moved to Phoenix, this was a thriving and very well known eating establishment created by Robert Gosnell. Before my time, they even had an armor-clad knight atop a white stallion serving as a parking attendant. Not a statue, a real man, clad in armor atop a horse who guided diners into the parking lot and the nearest parking spot. That would have been something to see. I’m sorry I missed it.
