Davenport Hotel

My sister Michelle and I went downtown to the Davenport Hotel as an opportunity to practice photgraphy. For those of you who have never been to Spokane, the Davenport is quite an elegant building that once hosted presidents, royalty, and the wealthy. Some years ago, the hotel fell into disuse, and was even slated for demolition at one point. A few years ago, the hotel was renovated and is now an historical treasure in the city.

I would be curious to know more about the symbolism in the architecture; the gargoyles, rams, serpents, and the caduceous.
