I wonder how I could best tell the writer of this post that I really enjoyed seeing the photos she posted. 🙂

Well thank you! So glad you enjoyed this story of history via photographs. It would have been a shame if the library had fallen victim to the fire. The loss of documents would have been terrible, the beautiful architecture would have been tragic as well.
