Sunlight Stripe

Pioneer Press Building in St Paul This one was sort of tough to photograph. I really wanted to capture the sunlight on the old Pioneer Press building, but had to stand back far to capture it all. However, if I went too far back, I would lose the stripe into the white building. I do like the building design. It's a fairly common look on the older buildings. I'm not sure when they left this building, but they are now located about three miles from here. "Here" is downtown St Paul. I believe it's the corner of Robert Street and 4th Street if I'm not mistaken.

I like the style of the older skyscapers also. Is the building in use now?

Absolutely it's in use, I'm not sure who uses it today though.

very nice picture. i like the stripe.

but they're not three miles from there--they're just a few blocks, over on cedar and fourth.

Is the building a few blocks away their current offices and the building down by the airport their printing and distribution building?
