Vintage texture in Taichung

I visited the Fourth Credit Union 第四信用合作社 in Taichung 台中 for ice cream before embarking on a long ride into Nántóu 南投 for a music festival and some sightseeing last weekend. Before setting foot inside I captured this close-up of the upper floors, an oddly scalloped design that wears its age well. One of these days I’ll get around to posting some photos of the extraordinary interior—but in the meantime, here’s another intriguing texture from the urban landscape of Taiwan.
