Heraldry in Lufkin, Texas (Part 5 of 5)

Finally, there was a bit of heraldry at the hotel where I was stying in Lufkin, Texas, directly in front of the elevators on the first floor. There was a nicely framed print of a ruined abbey or church with an heraldic design below it. Accompanying the print is the following inscription:

To William Thursby, Esqr.
This Prospect is humbly Inscribed by
Your Obliged humble Servts,
Saml and Nathl Buck.

I don’t know that the “heraldry” here (immediately above) is anything more than a pretty, semi-heraldic design; indeed, it doesn’t even seem to be on a shield. But still and all, it seems to add a nice touch to the display.
