I was impressed by the imagination, craftsmanship, and dedication to fabricating an incredible location like this from stone, mortar, glass, and wood. Definitely a highly-respected place with the marks deeply impressed in the floor and the stairs of the thousands - maybe millions - of feet that passed that way.…
