Recently I was offered a chance to fulfill one of my long-held Columbia dreams. Readers of the blog know that I have a sentimental attachment to the Columbia Flier/Patuxent Publishing building. I’ve often said that if I won the lottery, I’d buy it and transform it into one of those HGTV Extreme Homes. Something about this particular building, designed by local architect Bob Moon whose wife Jean was the managing editor of the paper, epitomizes for me an entire world of Columbia history.
I wish I had been there.
Last week I met a friend at the site to get a long awaited glimpse of the building’s interior. Here are some pictures I took while I was waiting.
We all have things on our individual Bucket Lists, be they real or imaginary. You may wish you could have explored an Egyptian pyramid or even prowled the corridors of Hogwarts. Me? I just wanted to see what lay behind this door.
I’ll take you in tomorrow.
