surmounted by ball finials and behind is a slated, truncated spire base capped by
a small dome which is surrounded by an angular cornice. Segmental arched bar windows.
Cornice hood over main doorway and pilaster strips above capped by ball finials.
The return front has a bay window with similar slender columns to the gallery, and
