Brick Block – Chatham, MA

A day trip to Cape Cod today after the blizzard of yesterday left over 20″ of snow. This sketch was done in the car parked across the street from the building. You sketch where you can in mid-winter in New England at 16 degrees and high winds. The Brick Block is a historic commercial building on Main Street and Chatham Bars Road in Chatham, Massachusetts. The 1-1/2 story English Revival structure was built in 1914 by Joseph Nickerson, a master mason, to a design by architect Harvey Bailey Alden. It originally housed shops on the first floor and residences on the upper floor. The block was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
