The design of 188 Chestnut is extra. So much going on in this photo. Let’s break it down: a broken #pediment over the door (the ornament with the scrolls); a #keystone above the arch window and the large window on the right; the #masonry work around the arch window is especially detailed and impressive; to the sides of the arch are #scrolls and above the #arch is another, albeit larger, #brokenpediment with ornate #ornamentation (scrolls, fruit cornucopias, and a pine cone at the top); the #dentils at the larger pediment continue along the horizontal line of the building; there is a smaller set of dentils at the #cornice as well; the #brick work on this building is done in a #flemishbond with black and red bricks; while the windows on the right are trimmed, those on the left each have a #soldiercourse along the top. 🧱🧱🧱 #architecture #historicplaces #thisplacematters #savingplaces @savingplaces #architecturalhistory #historicpreservation #historicarchitecture #philadelphia #philadelphiaarchitecture #phillyarchitecture #philadelphiapreservation #phillypreservation (at Old City, Philadelphia) https://www.instagram.com/p/BvRTfqHAIPG/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1v866wjklru35
