The Admiral Apartments, Shadyside

A simple modernist brick box is given an Art Deco flair by distinctively patterned brickwork.

Second Empire House, Jane Street, South Side

This exceptionally fine Second Empire house sits at the end of a row, and therefore has two exposed surfaces for the architect to play with. Victorian architects did not like plain flat surfaces, and whoever designed this house lost no opportunity to vary the shape and texture.

Seldom Seen Arch

The Wabash Railroad built this picturesque structure to carry its line over Saw Mill Run and the little lane that led back into the village of Seldom Seen.

Herringbone

The sidewalk along Sidney Street, South Side. Old brick sidewalks are pleasant and picturesque; they do tend to be just irregular enough to be hazardous to pedestrians whose eyes are glued to their phone screens.

Apartment Building, 17th and Sarah Streets, South Side

This modest apartment building (it looks as though the ground floor used to be a store) is enlivened by interesting brickwork.
