Carriage House?

The above are links to a mini-series I did at a building I drive past most days. I’ve been seeing it for years and finally decided to take some pictures. This was my second shoot at the location, though I intend to go back and do a lot more. I usually return to places many times before I have photographs I’m happy with.

It’s really strange to find this building next to one of the busiest streets in the city. It’s owned by the funeral home across the street for overflow parking and to store their lawnmower. I can’t figured out what it is. Was this a carriage house with servant’s quarters above? What do you guys think? The only problem, is that there’s no other home around it that would have needed a carriage house (the houses are mostly 1950s) and there’s no foundation of a previous home on the expansive lot. A little mystery for me to solve.
