The Chesterlee

I rather like buildings with names. Aside from the obvious ones like hotels and large public buildings, it just seems both a little elegant and a little quaint to come across a building with a name. Like this one - The Chesterlee - a small apartment building at the corner of Dove and Chestnut Streets.

The name itself sounds just a bit whimsical and I love the style of the lettering on the plaques.

(I'm acquainted with a man who lives here. He makes figurines out of duct tape...they're a clever bit of folk art and have been displayed around town, most notably twice in the window at the Daily Grind on Lark Street.)

  1. I loved that sign when I was living on Chestnut Street, and never took a shot of it, so once again, thanks for posting!
