St. Augustine part 3

St. Augustine is home to Flagler College, a beautiful old building that was once built as a winter haven for the turn of the century upper class. All that excessive spending is obvious all around the campus.
It was one of the first hotels to have electricity in Florida.
This water fountain is also a sundial, and the main center portion is supposed to represent the Sword of Christ.
The interior of the lobby is awesome. It is carved with all types of  figures, the Four Cardinal Directions, The Four Elements, The Four Seasons...etc. As well as many important historical figures pertinent to the area.
