Viola Street Preservation

The Philadelphia branch of Habitat for Humanity recently stepped into the uncharted territory of restoring house according to historic specifications along Viola Street in Parkside. As Hidden City notes, it's no small task. "The Flemish revival brick row houses, designed by Henry E. Flower and built by brewer Frederick Poth in the late-1890s, feature copper bays windows, gothic windows and a hint of the modern with exposed steel beams over the porches." [Hidden City]
