Bracket and Bay Window Detail
David Greenleaf House in Alameda, California

A handsome carved bracket provides visual (and possibly structural) support to the second floor overhang.  Note how the second floor shingles wrap around the corners without interruption, and how they splay out at the base to meet the projecting bay window trim.  The perimeter window trim is also quite subdued and exceptionally thin at the edges when compared to the Victorians of the period.  These characteristics are typical of the Shingle Style.  Ernest Coxhead was the likely architect of this 1891 house.  Photo taken in 2002 by Howard J. Partridge.
