Masonic Patterson




Masonic architecture in Patterson park, Grosse Pointe Park, MI. At my place where I shed blood, sweat, and tears (a.k.a my job) there is a gazebo in the far back reaches of this fully functional day park. It's a awe inspiring structure complete with vine lattices capping the roof. One doesn't realize looking from a far that this building has masonic qualities incorporated within. Entering the gazebo, you notice the style in which it was built seems - out of place. Clean lines, pillars with strong masonic characteristics, stone benches placed at right angles, and ornate tiles surrounding the base of pilers - with a pyramid design embossed into each one? In other words the damn thing doesn't look like it's built for Grosse Pointe. (All silver gelatin prints by Telegraphy.)
