The Merchants Exchange Building, designed by William Strickland and built 1832-1834. The lions are heavily eroded by acid rain. The lions are highly visible in side view, but nearly disappear when you look straight on at the building.

These were the lions that inspired this blog. I used to work across the street from this building, and I was fascinated at how pissed off the lions were.
