Wednesday Doors - TransOK Building


The 6 story TransOK Building at 2 West 6th Street.  Built for Public Service of Oklahoma in 1929 and now in mixed use.  The zigzag art deco style was very popular in Tulsa when it was built and is still very handsome.  They just don't make 'em like they used to.

That used to be HQ for a former employer.

They used to have the chromatography lab in the basement. When told by the Fire Marshall that that was a no no, the changed the name to the "Analytical Results Department"

Yogi - it is amazing what a difference a name can make. "a rose by any other name..."

They really don't make 'em like they used to. You are right. Beautiful building.

As I started to scroll down, I thought at first you were photographing a "Moorish"-type door. I see it's not that, but it's still unusual.

No, they certainly don't build 'em like this any more. One can spend hours searching out the details in the decorations of these old structures.
