Collection Michael Fulp House
Object Name Print, Photographic
Title Northeast perspective view of surviving walls
Description Black and white photographic print showing northeast perspective view of Michael Fulp House in partial ruins. Surviving are most of both gable walls, quoin corner piers [except top segment of northeast pier], and attic window frame and sash in the interior of the south [left] gable wall.

Details include: parged masonry; off-center attic window in south gable; on-axis attic windows [boarded-up] in north gable; surviving random rubble masonry of east eaves wall, north gable wall [right], and south gable wall [left]. The surviving structural components were preserved, and provided the forms, methods, and configuration for restoration. The quoin corner piers, with the alternating larger blocks penetrating ["toothed" into] the adjoining wall, provided tie-and-buttress resistance, preventing a complete collapse of the walls.
