One of the things interesting about El Paso architecture, especially downtown, is the top details. This is especially so, even if a building was re-tasked or remaindered in its continual and surprising original use. For all the misuse and disarray on the first floor, many remain untouched. That is of course, unless they are destroyed from within by careless and ruthless new owners, as can be seen in the dilapidated Caples Building.
