This row of houses on the south side of Manchester Avenue, just east of Kingshighway in the Grove, are slated for demolition for the now ubiquitous flimsy wood frame apartment buildings that are going up all over the neighborhood.
Left vacant and unmaintained for years, of course they look a little rough around the edges. That’s the whole idea…
But this beautiful house above and below can’t have its beauty hidden.
Several years ago, another apartment building replaced some perfectly intact houses further east. I photographed those houses before they were demolished.
