  • Row Houses (Pamela Scott)

The builder William Yost was resident at 1002 in this intact row of six Richardsonian brick houses. Although their design lacks sophisticated details and refined proportions, it compensates with robust forms, a variety of stoops, bays, and balconies so asymmetrically composed that it is difficult to discern where vertical divisions occur.
