Though it looks at first glance a bit like a Federal-style house, No. 192-194 is in fact a Cape with a full-width addition, according to the Provincetown Historic Survey. Inside, the building is rich in character and poor in right angles. Diana Henley of Brooklyn has owned the property since 1960. The musician Zoë Lewis (pictured) is among the residents. Commercial tenants have included John R. Small Mimeographing, 1940s; Rogers Art Supply, 1950s; Isis Unveiled, 1980s; Don’t Panic T-shirt shop; Third Eye at Phoenix Rising; and City Video (remember VHS?), which was succeeded by Adam Peck’s A Gallery, a showcase for the artist Christopher Sousa. Downstairs is FK Full Kit Gear Shop, “Serious Gear for Serious Men.” Serious about what is obvious enough after just a moment’s visit.
