Here is a curving wall and stairway leading to Masterson Hall on the campus of the University of Southern Maine. This building's design and wear is in stark contrast to yesterday's shot of the 3 story tenement on Valley Street. Like most small cities, Portland has an interesting blend of buildings that are the old and the new, the historical and the eye-sores, the abandon, and the lived in. This is one of my favorite structures on the Portland campus. I think it carries a nice look inside and out. A while back, I received my Master's Degree here in the city.
