East Side Triple Threat

Three slices 'o east side of Providence. Top is Central Congregational Church with a dome after my own heart, by the vaudeville team of Carére & Hastings.
Next is a common but welcome sight of an Empire Style house with the non-MacDonald's type mansard roof lifted above a vibrating yellow body capped by crisp white moulding profiles of various sorts.
Finally at the bottom is a smidgeon of a rare and rather unique Providence roof shape. This bell curve  occurs in several buildings downtown as well as on the east side, this being the final if not penultimate example.
