From the 14th floor of Gonda building adjacent to the Mayo Clinic
Artwork adorns the wall directly in front of the waiting room
Beautiful sailboats made from pieces of scrap metal.
Then another form of artwork out the window, 14 floors up
Beautiful downtown Rochester,
the court yard between the Mayo building (far right)
and the plummer building. (middle)
Straight ahead from the same window is that Kahler hotel sign. It's been there lit-up in the night sky for as long as I can remember. It used to be easier to see but as Rochester has expanded the sign has been lost from view, unless of course you stand across from it high up in the clinic buildings.
I ran across a small article from Rochester's Post Bulletin, it was interesting
to read the early ties between the Kahler Hotel and Mayo Clinic...
" Mayo's expanding clientele fueled the city's hotel industry, at the center of which was the Kahler, which later became known for it's red-neon sign blazing atop the city's skyline"...
