Saving old American architecture

4SQ_Small

This is an excellent example of the American Four Square, a style admired by non other than Frank Lloyd Wright which some say was in part the inspiration for his Prairie style.  In fact, this photo shows this four square in its southern variation — with a full wrap around deep porch.  I always feel compelled to capture these examples in photographs because we lose more and more of them to aging each day.  A larger sample for viewing is here.
