Stone dogs are sometimes seen on the steps of Alexandria doorways. Also note the miniature sailboat on the lintel (easier to see in the larger size; click on the photo to view). The homeowners are no doubt sailing enthusiasts, but this is also Captain’s Row, where many 16th century ship’s captains once resided. Photographer: MarieMcC of Alexandria Daily Photo. Taken in June 2006. This doorway is in Alexandria VA.
