The neighboring house to yesterday's illustrates an often ignored rule of making additions to historic homes: An addition should be complementary, not identical, to the original house. Perhaps the other rule is if you need more space, buy a larger house. Salt and Pepper brickwork does not match the yellow, I think it's dreadful.

And here is another Queen Anne, in all her regal splendour! Not often seen are the half hipped gable ends with dormers, and the gothic revival tower roof blends perfectly!

A wonderful red brick home in the Queen Anne Style. The brickwork on the chimney and tower is fabulous! The slate shingles on the tower roof are probably original, about 125 years old now.

Once a day (monday to friday) I will post a photograph of a Victorian House that I encounter along my travels. Any size, shape, condition, or style, just something Victorian. No identification other than street (if you are lucky) and town will be provided, and my commentary will be limited. All photographs will be taken by a Nikon D-100 Digital in fine format (6 megapixel), so you can click on them to enlarge for more detail. If you find your home among the posts found here, by all means leave a comment!
