Vines

Those vines aren't doing the masonry any favors, and it looks to be in tough shape already.

My wife's family had a very pretty ivy-covered chimney. I was shocked at the condition of the brickwork, when I pulled the ivy off. The foliage holds moisture in the mortar, and that, combined with the New England winters, is a Bad Thing.

Still there!

Although it has been fixed up a bit...

Summer Kitchen?

I imagine the second floor was the "summer kitchen" at least in 1937 when the picture was taken, but given what appears to be an old fireplace on the OUTSIDE at the base of the chimney (note soot inside the recess), this must have once been part of a larger structure at one time, perhaps another house by itself?
