    Lovely. Proportions are in conflict with the paired windows. Your photos from Bainbridge remind me that I once had dinner there with the son and daughter of Governor Marvin Griffin. They owned the paper and had invited me to speak to a dinner group. Griffin’s famous line was “I stole, but I stole for the people of Georgia.” e also got in hot water with Tech students when he stopped them from participating in the Rose Bowl because the opponents had a black player. I forget how that was resolved, but the Tech boys marched to the old Governor’s mansion and the family supposedly turned out the lights and crawled around on the floor until the students were dispersed.

    And, if you are not already familiar with it, Architectural History of the Lower Chattahoochee is a wonderful work.
