[Cornerstone Building]

Description: Photograph of the south east corner of the Cornerstone building, at Lamar Avenue and 2nd NE Street in Paris, Texas. On top of the wall, above the cornice, is a white colored replacement for the original ornamentation. The gray cornice is supported by ornamental consoles and there are gray medallions on the buff colored brick below the cornice. These features appear to be molded, not carved. The windows have white masonry ledges and bricked over steel lintels. The "Cornerstone" sign is noteworthy.
