This local office building caught my eye. The sign above the door says Yale Union Laundry - Office.
Here's more detail of the carvings. Can anyone identify this? It looks Roman to me. ***
*** Edited to add: I did a little online research and found the following:
The 1929 southwest corner entry on SE 10th Avenue and SE Belmont Street is accentuated by cast stone decoration representing a stylized Egyptian temple and is arguably the Yale Laundry Building’s most arresting feature. The corner is a classic example of Egyptian Revival elements inspired by ancient Egyptian temples like the Temple of Philae and the Temple of Amun at Karnak. One and a half pair arches rise vertically as engaged pilasters resting on cast stone plinth blocks and adorned with cast stone Lily flower capitals typical of Egyptian decoration. A cast stone door surround occupies the center arch at street level on SE 10th Avenue. The pilasters carry an arched cast stone entablature rising above the mezzanine floor windows. The recesses of the entablature are filled with a cast stone carving depicting laundry workers.From the registration form for the National Register of Historic Places as cited on Kimberli Fitzgerald's website.
