Modern Snapshot: Screen Block in N. Arlington


Here’s some more from my recent tour of Lee Highway in North Arlington. A nice example of concrete screen block used for privacy and decoration in the 1950s and ’60s. The building, which has expansive plate glass windows, is located here. Click on the Google street view for an image of the front of the building. I could not get a good one with my phone. I found a place in Orlando that still sells this design.

    I’ve been driving/driven past that building since I was a baby, and I always thought that building was awesome. The screens reminded me of the tessellated patterns you see on the walls of mosques, though I couldn’t find a good example online.
