Throughout my explorations of the cities and towns of Oklahoma I've encountered some very handsome architecture – examples of art deco, mid century modern and prairie school. Unfortunately most, if not all, are vacant. Their glory days have come and gone. Even though I'm clearly attracted to the desolation of these downtowns, I would have enjoyed seeing them at their best – when the hotels were full, the boulevards were busy and the local movie theatre's marquee lit up the night.
