Dear PoP – Mysterious Building Features

“Dear PoP,

Just west of Florida & 16th Street, on the south side of Florida Ave,
just beyond the end of the Washington House on 16th Street, this is
barely visible behind a fence. It doesn’t fit the front of the
building at all. Know anything about it?”

I absolutely love this yard and the columns. I posted about this back in August of ’08. At the time nobody could solve the mystery. I think I’ll have to swing by and try to knock on the door of the nearest rowhouse to see if they know anything. Of course it’s been a year, so maybe some new readers know what the deal is here?
