Brazil Building « previous 6 of 18 next »

The Brazil Building was considered the most beautiful of the state buildings. It was done in the French Renaissance style that was very popular in America from 1850 to 1880. The style fell out of fashion because cities were so polluted that the detailed carvings would gather soot. Inside the Brazil Building one could see a great display of Brazilian coffee.
