The Hill

How bout them Italians? The Hill is best know for its cute shot-gun homes, St. Ambrose and great food. I am adding another feature: strong-armed architectural smushing. Here at the corner of Macklind and 44 we see a hybrid post-modern Greek Revival entry with a French 2nd Empire roofline. Reminds me of the original bad mansard on Brannon, also on the Hill, a frankenstyle of Swiss chalet, split-level modern and 2nd empire wannabe mansard.
