PHOTOS: the beauty is in the details

Builders of yesteryear embellished the homes and residences along the historic section of Franklin Avenue in Ohio City and Detroit Shoreway with a host of fascinating details. Meticulously crafted wood that's been reanimated with eye-popping color and intricate stonework combine for a visual feast rarely enjoyed by Clevelanders zooming by on two or four wheels. Even an observant pedestrian might overlook these careful brick patterns and slices of gingerbread.
