Monroe Street

Round about the 1800 or 1900 block, I believe.

John Waite House, Old West End ( 1892 )

The form is simple, but the decoration pulls all the stops.

The walking tour brochure lists John Waite as the first owner. I'm going to have to find out what the C is for.

Someone must have liked pigeons.

Blackstone Building, Ashland Avenue

Someone obviously took very good care of this, until fairly recently.

Georgian ( ? ) Apartments, Old West End

One's the Georgian and the other, I believe, is the Collingwood. Sorry, but I wasn't about to dig through the remaining snow and slush to refresh my memory from the tile signs inset into the sidewalks. These are two, u-shaped buildings. The one on the left may be salvageable. ( I repeat, may. )
It's time for a reality check on this one, however. There's almost no realistic hope that it's ever going to be restored. Even remodeling it out of recognition would cost far too much to be feasable in our current situation.

The Old West End has few failures in the preservation department. It might be time to see this as one of them and give up.

Bethany Lutheran, West Toledo

I was there for pancakes and sausage, but I couldn't resist a few pictures. I've no idea why this one turned out so well.

Vistula Historic District

Having Read the Bible....

Your morality is 0% in line with that of the bible.

Damn you heathen! Your book learnin' has done warped your mind. You shall not be invited next time I sacrifice a goat.

I'm quite relieved.
