Thursday is "This Old House Day"
This is an example of the "Quincy Cottage" which was a modest worker's house built around 1880, with certain characteristics which made it practical, attractive and easily recognizable due to the particular placement of the dormers which pierce not only the lower slope of the roof but also the eaves. The majority of these cottages are in Southwest Quincy as is this one.
