Continuing from my Memphis Law Magazine shoot on the history of legal architecture in Memphis. This has been my "second office" for fourteen years now. Designed by James Gamble Rogers and completed in 1909, it's the largest courthouse in the state. I tend to take its beauty for granted, and I shouldn't.
After working downtown as a lawyer for 12 years, I tended to take for granted the amazing architecture. Often I was more concerned with doing my job than taking in the sights.
For a piece on area legal architecture in ML - Memphis Law Magazine, I visited these places as a photographer rather than a lawyer, and really appreciated what I saw.
First up: the beautiful office of Burch Porter. Definitely one of the most remarkable buildings in Downtown Memphis.
I got to hear some stories about the building from Mike Cody, who is as interesting a man as you'll ever meet.
Next up: the Shelby County Courthouse
