The Quick and the Daft

65 West LaCrosse Avenue

This house at the corner of LaCrosse & Runnemede is an extraordinary example of Victorian shingle style architecture.  I looks like something straight out of Cape May (or Jim Thorpe).  Interesting trivia: This house (and others on the street) was designed by Philadelphia architect William Free, who also designed Lucy the Elephant in Margate.  Free was a noted designer of amusement park structures in the 1880s and lived in another house in the Lansdowne Park Historic District.
