Hidden Plainfield: July 31 property ID


Right where everyone knew it is, on Madison Avenue.
Yesterday's Hidden Plainfield certainly was no mystery, as everyone knew exactly where it is.

More questionable is whether it is truly 'Moorish Revival'.

It may be more correct to consider it a Queen Anne influenced by the Aesthetic Movement. Certainly the brickwork is flamboyant and unique and almost defies being pigeion-holed.

I was inside once for a house sale and recall some of the interior details had a more markedly 'Moorish' feel.


A 'Moorish' interior as imagined by a Victoriian.

Where shall we go next week?
