None of that is quintessential Charlotte. In fact, most of those pictures are vanilla all the way and could be Anywhere, USA. Most of those buildings in the first two groups are certainly nothing special or notable as far as architectural design and the mid-century modern homes were all over the country, although some notable architects and designers were involved in mid-century design here.

Quintessential:

–noun
1. the pure and concentrated essence of a substance.
2. the most perfect embodiment of something.

I would have to agree with the above posters that none of those pictures are "quintessential" Charlotte, but they all exist here (obviously).

What are you really trying to ask? Landsdowne isn't exactly up the street from 4th Ward, so I'm not sure how those are supposed to relate to one another?
