There are numerous pop quizzes lying around Preservation in Pink just awaiting answers. So here we go, starting with the most recent. Click on the image to return to the original post.
This abandoned building is in Florence, Vermont. I do not have an answer for you at this time, though one reader suggests a church. Can any locals provide some help?
This brick bond is seen on a building in Middlebury, Vermont. Devin commented with the correct answer: diapering. You can identify diapering by the diamond pane that the glazed brick forms, along with the one glazed header in the center of the diamond.
The comments for this quiz are mostly divided between Colonial Revival and Craftsman. I think this house is a cross between the two, exhibiting elements of both styles. The exposed rafters and the false timbering on the entry gable belong to Craftsman. The symmetry, the portico columns and the entryway sidelights belong to Colonial Revival. Would you be surprised to know that this building was originally for a telephone company and on the rear it’s three stories? It is much larger than it looks.
What would you call the recessed brick sections on this building? The winning answer: blind arch or blind arcade. One is an arch, many is an arcade.
Name this structure. The marquee to a drive-in movie theater. Many of you guessed this right away. Good job!
Thanks for playing everyone. More pop quizzes to come. If you have any images that you think would be a good pop quiz, send it along.
