The majestic C&R Building in Escoda Street in Taft. Taking pictures around Taft, I revisited this old building I used to see a lot during college. It was one of the buildings that fascinated me along with the old Jai Alai building before it was butchered by Mayor Atienza. The Jai Alai building was the art deco style building with the Sky Room signage on the front. You can easily spot these buildings while riding the LRT.
The C&R Building building reminds me what a huge steamship would look like if its haul was cast onshore. Though I've never seen anyone peek out of those circular windows. I just think its great that its still functional and houses several clinics.
