Commercial 160Shed.

A shed has stood at this northeastern notch in the Grozier-Cabral property since 1912, to judge from the Sanborn street atlas of that year. (The 1910 street atlas does not show a structure here.) It’s my hope with Building Provincetown 2020 to record as many sheds, garages, and other out buildings as possible, since they play such a vital role in residents’ lives, but are generally overlooked because they are such utilitarian, vernacular structures. This shed is about 250 square feet. A sliding patio door has been installed on the gable front facing the back yard.
