Seaboard Air Line Railway Building, Norfolk.

Constructed in 1926, the Seaboard Air Line Railway Building is the only large scale commercial example of a late Gothic Revival style in Norfolk, and offers an early example of reinforced-concrete skyscraper construction in the city. With its well-preserved lobby, the building was one of the most important commissions of the regionally prominent firm of Neff and Thompson. It served as the purpose-built headquarters for the Seaboard Air Line Railway company for many years.
