Crowdsourcing Architectural Vocabulary

Though Curbed would purport to be (one of) your sources for quality content regarding the art of architecture, the truth is that attempting to compete with the likes of The Architecture Tourist is a fool's errand. Popping in on Terry Kearns' labor of love today, we find the AT contemplating some architectural detail on a 1928 apartment building in the Virginia Highland. As of the time this missive was published, readers had thus far been unable to help the AT identify the proper architectural term for an interesting piece of roof detail. Anyone fancying themselves a repository for arcane architectural vocabulary should get to the Comments section post-hase. [Architecture Tourist]
