McMenamins St. Francis Exteriors 2017 — photo 7 of 26: The main entrance to the Old St. Francis Pub, one of five venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Old St. Francis School property in downtown Bend, Oregon. According to the Walking Tour Guide PDF, “The ship’s mast-like figurehead character over the door is Lyle Hehn’s portrait of the ubiquitous Ruby, a favorite McMenamins icon and namesake of the tasty Ruby Ale. Flanked by two giant cast iron flame sconces that cling to the masonry, she looks out over the patio that separates itself from the sidewalk with unique ironwork fencing.” May 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
