Beautiful in Shaw - 1200 Block of 10th Street, NW
This series focuses on something beautiful in Shaw - a particularly striking house, a beautiful garden, architectural elements, people, pets - whatever and wherever I (or any of you) find something that makes you smile. Feel free to send ideas (and photos!) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's a beautiful historic rowhouse on the 1200 block of 10th Street, NW. It looks like this one is still in tact as a single family home with a basement rental on the lower level. So many of these seem to have been converted into condos and apartments; it's nice to find a complete one! More photos below:
The detail work around that doorway is simply awesome. They just don't build stuff like that anymore!
