Facade Question

It was a decorative metal cornice, usually with some corbeling. Most rusted away in the 50's and 60's. Lots of time it's stucco mesh or even chicken wire under the "parging".

Maybe masonry that was falling apart, but usually metal.

I agree with Kurt. There was some form of ornate finish there at one time that is no more, and the mortar wash was applied to cover rough masonry - not intended to be seen.
