South on Compton Avenue #5, Dutchtown #2

Update: See another house that appears to be by the same builder here (6th and 7th photos) in this post from from March of 2020.

More of Dutchtown south on Compton. Just look at that house above; hardly anybody puts that much effort into making a small house that beautiful anymore today. It might be one of the most striking houses in the city.

    I wonder if the first house pictured was constructed by a brick mason for himself. Sometimes, you find houses built by tradesmen for themselves which have a much higher level of detail than would normally be found in such a small house. One of my great-grandfathers was a cabinetmaker; his house was not large, but it had the built-in cabinetry of the largest mansion. After all, why not have the best for your own house if you have the skills to do so?

      That is very possible.
