Look closely at this building in downtown Washington. The front mansard looks ok. The back, not so much. And there's a lot more going on- the parking lot wall, the facade of the store, the AC units, the windows on the 3rd floor of the south elevation. And yes, that is a deck off the back wall.
The awning announces a small grocery store, Droege's. You have no idea how hard it was to get a decent picture. I had to drive around the block 3 times to get a picture from all angles. It didn't help that my husband's camera was having focus issues.
Tonight young Audrey has been invited to a rollerskating party at the Skatium down in the Carondelet neighborhood. There are TONS of mansards down there, good and bad. Wish me luck in getting a picture of some of them.
