Old third story brick, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

Here is a photo from 13th St. showing an original third floor extension made out of brick. I’ll tell you why I like this one. Even though it still “sticks” out it has all the surrounding details that the other houses have, it is just one floor higher. If you look at the roof (my housing vocab. is slim) the border is exactly like the neighboring houses. Hmm, so I wonder why this house was built with an extra floor if it was built during the same time period as the 2 level houses. Any ideas?
