|This private club building illustrates a number of characteristics of the Queen Anne style, a style popular in the United States from the 1870s until the turn of the century. The facades often featured projecting oriels (here over the main entrance), odd rooflines, tall multiple chimneys (here two), turrets (often with bell roofs [as here]), and rich textural surfaces--with cut and molded brick, terra cotta plaques, or ornamental plaster.|
View from the corner and view of the side--with ornamentaal cast-iron railing
The shaped parapet with round arched windows separated by columns; decorative terra cotta plaques
Decorative chimney with blind arcades and detail of the turret with the bell roof
