For many years now, people have been fool by appearances. Someone may
look at the exterior of an object and expect one thing when actually the exact
opposite is waiting inside for them. For example, an unexpecting person picks
off a grape from the bunch and bites into the fruit while dreaming of a mouthful
of juicy, sweet grape but in reality receives a surprisingly bitter splash with
the first bite. Or when a person first looks at a power vision 3-D picture

sections. Concrete was also used as dividers between floors. Between each
floor, the redish-brown, 4 by 8 in. bricks are split up by a light grayish
horizontal concrete layer. The items used in the construction of this building
show the strength
needed for the protection of a bank.
Secondly, the setting of the Karrmann Library is unique and creative,
like a modern bank, ...
