The summer heat has moderated at last, and we can sit outside once more without the need for a body squeegee. That’s porch weather! Here are some porches (all of them at least eighty years old) seen downtown and on all four sides of town:
House (1920) on Allen Street on the near East Side. Note the half-cove shingles.
Waddy R. Ross house (1917) on Park Street at Grand Avenue on the North Side.
On Grand Avenue (1930).
House (1920) on May Street on the near South Side.
Rectory (1908) of St. Patrick Cathedral.
Ball-Eddleman-McFarland house (1899) next to Pollock-Capps.
House (1925) on Bunting Avenue in Hi Mount on the near West Side.
“Well,” I hear an indignant lady on College Avenue sniff, “these are all well and good, but what about Fairmount? Why is it not represented here?”
