Whatever you might think of the Markel Building in Richmond, VA, you have to agree it’s pretty original. I lovingly refer to this architectural anomaly as “the Jiffy Pop building”. If you’re familiar with Jiffy Pop, no further explanation is required. If not, here’s a link to the Wikipedia article on it, complete with pictures: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiffy_Pop. I don’t know much about the building but I believe it was originally build for Reynolds, the aluminum company, when they were big in Richmond.

It was a big deal back in the day when the folks brought home Jiffy Pop. Thanks for sharing both the building and memories!
