Title: [Side view of damaged townhouses]

Side view of townhouses, including one that has been badly damaged by fire--it's exterior is almost entirely blackened and the brick is missing in places. On one townhouse is a sign for "Malen" or "Nalen" "Variety Gift Shop". The sign includes a phone number that ends in 455-5630, but it's unclear if the area code was written as well but chipped off or whether there is no area code.
