StuccoWindsor

1405 Erie Street East

The picture above was taken in 2006, sometime later, someone thought that this building didn’t look good enough, so what’s one to do?… So this kind grey skim coat went up on the place, I was expecting it to get the stucco treatment, but it never really…

Stucco Time - Guess the Victim

First off sorry for the lack of a post yesterday. I was sick on Monday and actually lost a day somewhere this week. See if you can guess today’s victim of the great urban blight? If you guessed the crazy cool streamlined Anderson’s funeral home, you are…

Leo Page Residence - 1919
