I had never noticed this building before until the last time I went to the dentist and parked near it--something made it really stand out this time--the morning light, the autumnal color of the remaining leaves on the vines covering it, the dampness after a recent rain. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me so I couldn't photograph it--and the property owner's trash bins were in front of it, which detracted a little bit from its beauty. I had wondered what it originally was used for. Thanks for posting this!
