The unique and gloriously repetitive stucco ornaments and special architectural style left me no choice but to stare at the ceiling and try to photograph it as best as I can, i stood exactly in the middle of the music hall and took the photo from above my head with a wide-angle lens.
I saw cracks in the stucco facade. I saw deterioration of the concrete balconies.
I was standing at an angle from the building and I could see the texture of the stucco on the front of the building, you could see the vertical wooden supports through the stucco and I looked at the picture and they were in the exactly the same place. I was amazed. That clinched it.
