    Brian, what is that on the roof? Looks like a bicycle rack.

    • That’s known as a ‘Widow’s Walk’. In coastal towns it was a place where wives would go and look for their husband’s ship to return. The style obviously spread from coastal areas and became more a decorative element than a practical feature.

    I was admiring this house the other day, as I drove past it.
