The Weekend in Black and White: More of the house from last weekend

Last weekend I posted a shot of the basement window (bottom far right) in black and white so I thought this weekend I'd post a wider view. I posted a shot of the front of this house in black and white some time ago and possibly a similar view to this one in the past. This is one of two houses left on a street that is all office and commercial buildings and the other house is used for an office. I think this house is empty but I'm pretty sure it has only been used as a house instead of for another purpose which is part of why the florist sign I spotted through the basement window surprised me, and why I zoomed in on it last week.

The decorative wood paneling at the top gives this once thriving home an air of distinction. Although now empty, the curtain at the window hints that someone is still living there.

It's a fine house, and looks to be still in good condition. Lovely photo.

So love the layered panelling below the roofline. A grand old home.

Lovely in B&W ... makes it even more poignant ... you can tell this was a fine well-loved home at one time.

Love the decorative treatment of the gable. Must have been a beautiful home at one time.
