As a stroll through this neighborhood makes readily apparent, the brick Federal Revival house form offered a wide variety of forms and details that individualize what could have easily become routine. Here, the Ionic order is applied as a frame around the center entrance, which is flanked by shallow bow windows. Bow windows recall the influence, then waxing in American Georgian Revival design, of prototypes from the English Regency of the early 19th century. Completely idiosyncratic, however, is the reed-and-rosette frieze that extends above the eaves on the façade. Logan was a prolific early 20th-century builder, both of houses and commercial blocks. Mr. Brunschwig worked for L. Levy & Co, manufacturers of imitation stones.
