Building No 56

We have Samir, a 'Workaway' staying with us at the moment.
While looking at Google Earth to discover where he lives, he mentioned we might be interested in homing in on the most famous local landmark of his town, (Ypsilanti, Michigan) and the winner of the 2003 most phallic building in the world award - I don't know if there were further awards but it would be challenging to find anything more . . . thrusting than this brick water tower, constructed in 1889 and still in use today.
Bravo to William T Coats, its architect; I must find out what else he designed . . .

Of course, I then digressed into Google image-land and found all sorts of other interesting references to phallic structures and indeed places housing collections of phallic objects, including the
Icelandic Phallological Museum, housing, so it states, a collection of penises from all types of mammals found in one continent; everything from shrews to elephants.

Sorry, I don't know who this is but I liked the picture. Ah, I just found out - John Marmysz, photo from his blog 'The Nihilist Void'. John is standing next to an Elephant dong.
