Note that in this area, buildings were built with no space between them. When buildings adjoin tightly like that, side windows are not possible. That is why this house just beyond the park has no windows in its side. There was probably a building next to it that was demolished to form the park.

Time, vandals and corrosion have left this once noble sign in ruin.

A birdbath to attract birds
