Georgian architecture is still being copied, as the streets of every big city and most small towns bear witness. Much of the time other decorative elements have crept in, or correct ones have been used in unlikely ways, rendering the result less than pure. Although the tile roof of the gas station and the cupola of the Florida courthouse pictured above are fairly faithful renditions of the style, the lines of the courthouse building are chunky and lack the perfect proportions that are the underpinnings of the real Georgian product.
