Little House on the Urban Prairie - Part II

Remember this little house on the urban prairie at 16 Harwood Place? I dusted off a few files at the Central Library and have clearly identified the architectural detail here at 16 Harwood Place as having been manufactured by the country's first industrial tile factory located - a stone's throw away - here on the City's near East side from 1857 to 1922.

Here's a close up from the 1873 company catalog on the left and the detail found at 16 Harwood Place today.

More about the three generations of the Lyth family business, saving 16 Harwood Place and two sets of detached masonry row houses near this East side neighborhood...

Could 16 Harwood Place be the only brick or masonry residential structure in Buffalo's largest Historic District, Hamlin Park?
