MCM Architecture in Oklahoma

We were visiting Duncan, OK last November and ran across some great MCM buildings in and near the downtown area. I love travelling to other cities and looking for MCM buildings. You never know what you will find.

Below is an electric company's office. I believe in front you could drive up and pay your bill.

This was a most unusual building. The block pattern on the sides of the building ran all the way up through the overhang. It almost seemed like scored concrete.

This was a building right off the main street. I just love the old planters and the glass case in front. I have always wanted to open up a MCM shop and have some great glass cases out front to highlight some super cool vintage furniture.

This building had so many cool things about it. Cool planter out front, an unfinished type terrazzo trim, wavy glass and metal vertical shutters.

This trim was very interesting. It was not shiny and smooth like terrazzo. It was very rough to the touch but it really reminded me of terrazzo.

This is a shot through the front window into the office area.

These are the metal vertical shutters.

I love this type of iron work. This was at the entrance to what I would guess to be an old grocery store.

I can't wait for spring to come so we can get back out on the road and see what other MCM jewels are out there.

Hope you are staying warm!
