I was driving to the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve from Ponca City, because having a free afternoon in a different part of the state makes it hard for me to resist the pull of a new place to photograph. So, I was driving and when I reached Pawhuska I was surprised at the interesting downtown area. It reminded me of an older version of a bustling coastal city. What stood out was the narrow streets with a large Triangular shaped building at the end of the street, which, you would never guess was called the "Triangle Building." Now, North East Oklahoma experienced a massive oil boom in the early twentieth century making Tulsa one of the richest cities in the world, and bumping wildcatters like E.W. Marland and Frank Philips into prominence. Towns sprouted up overnight with men sleeping on rooftops and with money soon came decadence. I was told by a man on the street that there were only a few buildings like this in the world. I'm still curious about this town. I read the building was once filled with 100 lawyers and thought perhaps its better off abandoned now.
