    Did you know why so many big buildings (especially apartment buildings) in New York City are missing their cornices? The demand for copper in World War II was so great that building owners donated the cornice materials to the war effort.

    Great message – I’ll be posting something on this topic soon re Melbourne (Australia) as people miss so much by focusing on their phones or the much-altered ground floor facades. Many of our footpaths are shaded by awnings that makes the detail hard to see except from the other side of the road.
