Figure 1. I  ONIC house. Scranton, PA. Photo: author.

Well, this house is certainly extry bold. What do you think? Was it remodeled at some point to turn it into apartments, and then restored to a single-family house? The spacing of the columns, with their cockeyed rhythm and the placement of the door, not on axis with its intercolumniation, suggest an architectural calamity.

Otherwise, the house in question, on Richmont Avenue in Scranton, is a well-kept structure that is doing more than its fair share to keep house values on its block up. But still, that spacing!
