Glazed Address Of Distinction

This is the Adams Building in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma.

It was built in 1928 and was originally a hotel.  It was built to attract businessmen who came to Tulsa for the first International Petroleum Exposition.  When it first opened, it advertised itself as the "Address of Distinction" and boasted 50 air-conditioned rooms.

The building has 13 stories with a full basement and penthouse. It is the 18th tallest building in the city.

Look at the beautiful detail.  The facade of the building is covered in glazed terra cotta tiles made by the Northwestern Terra Cotta Company.
