Every house on this block is nearly identical (or was at some point in time before people had their way with them).  If you go to Google maps "Street View" it looks like there are a bunch of houses winking at you.  While it's not uncommon to see this type of window awning in homes from this time period, I can't think of another section of street in town with quite so many houses with this type of "winking" awning?
