At the request of Franz Jantzen, one of our best architectural advisor-historians, we present the front facade of the residential building featured yesterday in our post about a four car garage etc. in Rockville, MD.  Looking at the combined doorway/arch thingie, we are repulsed by its gaping maw-ness, or as we once confusedly described a similarly distressing sight, in a callow bit of cognitive confusion, a “gaping “yaw””.  Well Franz, is this about what you expected?  Or were you preparing yourself for something more thrillingly ghastly?
