This was the largest armory in the world at time of its completion in 1899. It is a superb example of Richardson –Romanesque architectural style.

Great example of a classic armory architectural style, Barnabas - I love old buildings in this style, a modern, industrial castle. You've caught it here in a nice wide angle showing us a remarkable amount of this large building.
While it must have been difficult to capture the wide view, the photo itself might have been better off by waiting for a moment where cars didn't clutter the shot - often very difficult in a larger city, to be sure.
PS - I note that the shot is only 131kb. Not sure what program you're using to resize, but you should be able to pack more data into a shot like this despite the size limitations, which would give you better and more vibrant detail.
