Atlanta's Candler Building opened in 1906 with a full complement of Lions. Two things first. One, if you aren't from Atlanta: The Candlers were Coca-Cola. Two, if you are in downtown Atlanta: Walk into the lobby, thank me later.
I'm on a hunt. My last post was "Sixty Lions on the Ellis Hotel's Cornice - Really - I Counted Them." A kind reader wondered about the Candler lions. Here we go.
The south cornice has four lions.
The east cornice has eleven lions.
The north cornice has six lions.
The west cornice has ten lions.
The other "south cornice" doesn't have a cornice or lions.
That's 31 lions in cornice.
The east entrance has two Lions.
The west entrance has two lions.
That's 35 lions in all. Have I missed any? Let me know.
The lion count on the Glenn Hotel.
