Scope and content

The mid-block building located at 147 and 149 James St. was built pre-1900 in the Ontario Vernacular style. The 1½-storey duplex has a medium-pitched, gable roof, a simple form, and a central entrance. An existing projecting, (enclosed) entrance porch is not original. The entrance doors may have had an awning roof projection at one time. There is a lack of decoration. The aluminum (replacement) windows may have been enlarged. Wood frame construction has vinyl siding and there is a parged, block foundation. According to the 2000 inventory, this modest building displays few historical features beyond the basic form. (1, 3)
