On second thought there might be a problem with my solution.

I was out doing some yard work and spaced out while looking at a neighbor's house. I had never really noticed before,but there is a bay window that doesn't really fit in. Doesn't look bad or anything just doesn't quite look like it belongs. And for whatever reason the question stuck in my mind which was off on it's own while I continued to work manually, finally it came up with the easiest solution to the problem of finding the answer as soon as I got back in side,which I did an hour or so later.

Apparently the thinking-things-through part of my brain was occupied in the yard work because only after I opened my laptop to navigate to Google street map archives from back when the house was built in the 1930's to see if it was original, did I detect the flaw in that plan.
