Most historic garages feature wood-shingle or clapboard siding. Decorative scalloped shingles were less common.
Some surviving garages retain the original wood vehicular-entry doors with cross bracing in the barn-door style.
Many vehicular-entry doors featured divided-light windows, such as these 3-over-3 lights in a Rosebank garage.
Exposed rafter tails under the eaves can be found on some surviving historic garages.
Original strap hinges remain intact on the outward-swinging doors of some historic garages.
Windows in front-facing gables added natural light and charming detail.
