Bartizan

An overhanging wall mounted turret. The design originated in medieval castles, but has continued ever since as an architectural element in modern buildings. Pictured is a building in Milwaukee just south of Jones Island. The building has become well known since it is available as a model railroad building. You don’t have to look at many model railroads to see the building pictured here.
