There is a strange but interesting mix of houses lining Kingshigway, which doesn’t seem like was intended to be a major artery when these homes were built.

Interestingly, there are many brick Arts and Crafts Style houses in this city, including the one below–they’re usually sheathed in stucco and half timber.

  1. The bldg in the last photo is actually a duplex. I lived in the apartment bldg next to it about 20 years ago. The architectural detail inside that building was amazing!
