Natural A/C

I noticed the man sitting at his open window to smoke a cigarette and read his newspaper. Then I noticed all the rectangles creating the pattern and the tenuous  balance of the window and granite cornerstone. What's not to like, except the sight of an otherwise nice-looking man sucking little bits of fiery embers into his lungs.

Here's another fixer-upper available to a prospective owner wanting a potential income-producing property. Trouble is, for as much work as this building needs, I'm in love with the rubbed turquoise finish on the bay windows.

Great composition in that first shot, Speedway. Well spotted.
I'm with you on the fixer-upper. A sympathetic restoration would leave the weathered paint to give the place a more period feel. What a shame to see such fine looking (and historic) buildings in such a state of disrepair. I hope it gets restored rather than knocked down.
