My neighbor's mansard part 2

One of the joys of ownership of a proper Italianate mansard circa 1880 is its annual upkeep. My great neighbors to the south recently had to do a lot of work on their mansard as featured on this blog in October 2015. Here is the finished product. Quite beautiful!  It also costs a fortune, as in the same cost as a mid size sedan, as we are learning.  Bravo to Mr and Mrs z. Beautifully done.

Somewhere on an Alabama state highway on the way to the Florida panhandle is Granny's restaurant.

A drunk amongst the mansards

Just another Sunday afternoon in soulard. This guy couldn't find his apartment so he took a little rest.

I wish my alley were this much fun!

This was definitely the best, albeit first, official alley party I have attended. 3800 block Juniata and Connecticut.

Somewhere in southern Missouri

The top picture is poplar bluff. I've always enjoyed this building even though it does not have a mansard roof. The middle picture is also in Poplar Bluff. Last picture somewhere on the Arkansas Missouri border
