600 BLOCK East Congress Street
The 600 block of East Congress Street (South) is an odd assortment of buildings.
I like the movement this individuality creates in the skyline; the window banks reveal variety in floor to ceiling heights. I like the arched opening of the backyard passage in the one-story brick row in the center of the block.
I have included construction dates where possible. The two wood-frame structures may be turn of the 19th century, and the one-story stucco at the west corner, latter half of the 20th century. This collection of buildings spans 150 years.
