The charm and consummationof creations such as these are well within the art of dottingthe borders of the lesser thoroughfares with small housesand grounds, which are types in fact and not in ideal, pic-tures that have passed the stage of the first rough sketch andnow appear as gems befitting their neighborhood, while ave-nue, boulevard and promenade can be made to put on immor-tality of stone and marble majesty, at the west end of town.
