Arizona Art Deco V: Old Phoenix City Hall. There is a new Deco Echo City Hall across the street that is like 10 bajillion times bigger, to reflect the city’s growth since the original City Hall was built. The building is the same building as the Maricopa County Courthouse, but is facing off to the side. All the Arizona pics are up on my flickr: http://bit.ly/1KNUZo6
