Built in 1929 by oil tycoon Frank Yount and his wife, Patsy, The Mildred Building was named for their only daughter and is one of Beaumont's most outstanding examples of architecture from that era.

A designated historical landmark, the Mildred Complex consists of an apartment building with an adjacent business arcade connected by a fenced courtyard, the only one of its kind in the Beaumont. Working with P.E. Robinson of the Austin Company, the Younts chose the Mediterranean style with 16th and 17th century Spanish influence, seen in the building's crests and wooden beam motif.

The 18-unit apartment building was an architectural marvel for its time due to such modern innovations such as central vacuum, cooling, and recessed radiators. No two apartments are alike in design and many still contain Mildred originals furniture and accent pieces custom designed for each apartment. The famed Rooftop Promenade provides an excellent vantage point to view the city's downtown skyline.
The Mildred Buildings are a Mediterranean Revival style complex of apartment, store and garage buildings on half a city block

Hi Bill and Happy Thursday.
Wonderful capture of this building in the Mediterranean style.
Very interesting accompanying notes too.

It's leaning Bill.. initially I thought it's the tower of pisa.. love the orange process though.. makes it look rather 60s.. Audrey Hepburn would love it.. it's her era.. :)

Old but perfect shot, very interesting building, dear friend Bill
You are always excellent in composition and object.
We have unexpectedly warm and sunny weather. I spent the day in the nature, It is pity to be in the house with computer.
Hugssssssssssss !
