Good neighbours

Good neighbours 3: Stokes Croft

Good 3

Stokes Croft, Bristol

Another example of individuality within conformity.

Red brick and uniform shop frontages unite the ensemble.
On the left, a Dutch gable tops off a severely classical façade.
In the centre sits a utilitarian design, probably fronting a workshop or warehouse.
On the right a more Baroque interpretation is also surmounted by a Dutch-inspired pediment with the merest hint of curves.

You might just spot a 20th-century building peeping over the top, but despite being brick-faced for me its height and mass would not class it as a Good Neighbour.
