Gable & steeple

I've always been attracted to unpainted concrete in what would be referred to as 'period' residential architecture, the period covering the decades 1930s - 1960s. There's something very... reassuring about it. Solid. Wartime austerity. Deeply melancholic and grimly beautiful. No poxy paint jobs. No colour conflict. Uniformity across multiple units.
