Providence never went in for bungalows in a big way. They certainly exist, but usually as modest frame houses not particularly distinguished formally as bungalows. This group represents a rare and visually compelling concentration of bungalows, all with large, two-story gambrel roofs sweeping down over full-width front porches with gutsy supports, large-girth columns on numbers 11 and 19, and brick piers on 15. Variations in the surface materials also give variety and modulation to the nearly identical houses. Ford built these on speculation, selling numbers 11 and 15 while retaining 19 as a rental property.
