Anderson Turret

Downtown4Jeff by you.

It’s so cool that the Chiquola Hotel has been renovated– and Jeff Michels shares with us a view of perhaps the focal point of the building: the turret. I imagine the most prized condos have a view from those windows.

I looked up “turret” to make sure I was using it correctly. Yep, it’s a turret. Those angled stones helping to support the tower’s weight are called “corbels.” Impressive, huh? 🙂



  1. I enjoy this shot. Great job Jeff!

  3. Love the perspective and also the lesson on architecture, Lessie. Thanks for taking the time to look it up. The colors of the building against the blue sky are lovely. Nice shooting Jeff.
