Milwaukee Federal Building--page 1 (of two pages)

Willoughby J. Edbrooke
1899




This federal building, which occupies a city block, is an outstanding example of Richardson Romanesque architecture. For comparison, see especially his Allegheny County Courthouse, which also has corner pavilions, a central tower, a steep roof with dormers, interesting fenestration, and Romanesque details.
