Quelque part en France F. Mansart roulement dans sa tombe*

The monstro-mansards apartment complexes at 55 and Union are legendary (in my mind anyway).  Reader/Brownie leader/electrical contractor superstar Emily was kind enough to send me the icing on the gateau:  La rue s'appelle Mansard. That's like naming your street "Gabled" or "Hipped."  Somewhere a French dude named Mansart is rolling in his grave.

Merci Emily!  

*I know this sentence has at least one error.


  1. that photo should totally be in your header.

  2. how can it be considered a roof if it's the entire building?
