That's the Philtower building, as in Phillips...as in Waite Phillips of Phillips Petroleum, or Phillips 66 fame. Good ol' Tulsa boy, left the city far better than he found it.

Philtower Building - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You can live there if you want...private terrace, 1,500 square feet, great view. $2,600 a month with utilities paid.

Aha- thanks. Great building! We preferred that to 'the big guy' of whom everyone else in town appeared to so proud. Seemed a bit 'village people' to us.

The ol' Golden Driller. Yeah, overrated. There's great architecture downtown for this being such a small city. Go north about an hour and you'll find the only skyscraper that Frank Lloyd Wright ever built, which is quite cool as well. We used to be swimming in oil money at the turn of the 20th century. I drove by a brand new development next to my son's elementary school this weekend - 6,500 square foot homes selling for around $1.25 million. Lots of retail development, and the housing starts near me are all higher end homes. I guess the economy isn't all that bad around here.

My original point of this thread was to reveal how much fun we had doing this, and to encourage others to get out one day with their cameras, go downtown, fire off some pictures, and post them up for everyone to see. I'd have shot more people if there were any around - it's like we had the whole area to ourselves.
