Remembrance of Things Past
Every now and then, though, you might happen upon a scene like this, a relic of a time, perhaps at the end of the 19th century when this block was all stately town homes with interesting architectural details. Some times it's the result of a stubborn home owner, refusing to give way to the developers, despite the completely changed character of the neighborhood. It's a scene that can bring to mind the children's classic, The Little House, although happily this building is in much better shape than the main character in that book was at the height of urban development.
I'm pretty sure that no one lives here anymore. Still, it's fun to imagine what life might have been like behind those doors.
