I posted this image yesterday. And noticed something. See the scrollwork above the stained-glass transom? See over to the right? It looks like a scroll is missing. And isn’t some scrollwork missing over a bit more, where the green painted cornice is (kinda in shadow)?
In the basement is an old box. A magical box! It is filled with bits-o-scrollwork which have fallen off the house over the decades. Rather than toss these bits out, successive owners picked them up and put them in the box. I want to kiss each person who did this. KISS! Well, today I climbed up the ladder with the box-o-bits, and tried to see if any of the missing scrollwork could be found.
And I am pleased to announce that we have a partial victory!!!!!!!! I found the upper portion of scroll for the part just above the ladder, but not the swirl below. Drat! But also yea! Over to the right, I found the entire missing bit!!!!!!!!
