Squint Shot 061711

Although I've been doing a 'then and now' series of squint shots lately, every now and again I notice something on the buildings worth noting.  We will get back to the other series soon.  Today I just wanted to show a couple of close-ups of the upper windows on the red brick building on the northwest corner of East Grand River and North Second Street.  This building used to house Maria's School of Dance up until a year ago. 

I started looking at the treatment over the windows and began to wonder what the larger stones on each side of the curved bricks may possibly have been at one time.  They may have always had this bumpy effect or maybe a carved look has worn away from time and weather. 

Any thoughts?
