The folks over at Main Street Birmingham (MSB) submitted a photo taken in front of the Nixon Building in Birmingham’s Ensley community as one of the 1,900 entries in this year’s National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Places That Matter Photo Contest. The photo is the latest piece in a campaign to raise funds for the renovation of the building into a cultural center for the community and the region.
Yesterday it was announced that the photo was picked to be one of the 12 finalists! You’ve got until October 9 to sign up and vote once-per-day for the photo.
MSB’s got additional instructions on their website as well as a rendering of what the completed project will look like when completed.
Just in case you’re interested, here’s the link to photos and descriptions of all the finalists.
