We got ourselves a competition going!

Hint: This building is in the Delta.
Note: I’m going to have only intermittent access to the internet today and tomorrow (yeah, weird, huh?). So don’t be alarmed if I’m mysteriously quiet for a while–just talk amongst yourselves and I’ll be around presently to hand out points.

Clarksdale Civic Auditorium–built as a WPA project in 1939 and designed by none other than Jackson architect E.L. Malvaney.
Yes cut and past, but why recreate when the best has already written it so well.
Alright, ya’ll, tsj pulls ahead again! Tomorrow’s the key, and it will not be a building I have discussed on the blog or on Flickr. May the best man/person/preservationist win!
No way did you beat me by five minutes! No fair!
What is she supposed to be holding? It looks like a deco skyscraper.
It does indeed appear to be a Deco skyscraper. See the detail image at http://www.flickr.com/photos/26519181@N06/3501517096/
As for why she is holding a skyscraper, perhaps not even the real Malvaney would be able to say for sure :-)
