13 - Architectural Detail
This strange little purple house is a thrift store for a homeless shelter. I haven't figured out what this brick column was for. I thought fireplace, but it's too long and narrow, and there's nothing inside, except a small divider of brick. I'm not sure that it was ever a house to be lived in, because it's in a retail district, but a lot of houses were torn down to put the retail stores in. I can't imagine a use for the column, but it's interesting, anyway (to me at least)! Now, the purple is something else again . . .
