Out of town two flat

Here's an adorable two-flat, set of two-flats, actually, from a quick trip to Racine last weekend. Those wide bays, mission arches on the parapet wall and two entrances, each entry seems to have it's own porch, all add up to a nice change from the densely packed Chicago two-flat. I'd love to see inside, I'd hope they are as substantial inside as they look to be from outside.

This one is certainly not native to Chicago but a great building nonetheless.

I know, isn't it though? With that massive solidity, it exudes substantial stability (or something like that). It has a hint of Germanic Gemutlichkeit about it too I think (as well as some cultural seriousness if you will...).
