Before I moved to the West, I had read a lot about false fronts on buildings, but I hadn't seen too many other than in movies. As far as I can tell, they served no function other than making the building look more impressive, but they do make me wonder about the people who constructed them. Surely they knew that it wasn't difficult to see that they were only a facade.
