Historic Victorian House Show

Historic Victorian house show starting with the Victorian house below on the National Register of Historic Places in San Francisco, California; where I believe are some of the most beautiful Victorian houses.  My saying about a Victorian house is that they are eye candy and turns out this is a common saying about Victorian or Queen Anne houses.

Ignore the white truck, pretend it’s not there.  If I crop the truck out of the photo, it does not give the house justice.

This Historic Victorian house is facing Colleseum Square in New Orleans and photographed by Creative Commons user Infrogmation, who has been busy photographing the Hurricane Katrina aftermath in New Orleans and chronicling the city’s history.  – commons.wikimedia.org. I think this house should be repainted in Victorian house colors to turn it into a pretty painted lady.

Just darling eye candy.  A movie or TV show should be filmed here so everyone can see it.  This Historic Victorian house is called Doctors House and is in Glendale California.  So called because it is named after three doctors: Dr. C.V.Bogue, Dr. D.W.Hunt, and Dr. A.L. Bryant.  “It is one of the few remaining houses of Queen Anne Eastlake style of architecture in Glendale.”   When it was going to be demolished in 1979, a councilman, John F. Day, successfully rescued it.  The Glendale Historical Society then moved the house in 1980 and began restoration with community help.  – All per commons.wikimedia.org.    I am glad this beauty was saved from destruction.

Victorian Queen Anne style

This is Hale House that is also on the National Register of Historic Places in the United States.  It’s a Queen Anne style house and is in the Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.  “Located since 1970 at the open air Heritage Square Museum (with 7 other historic buildings), in the Arroyo Seco (3800 Homer Street), Los Angeles.” – per commons.wikimedia.org.

I would never think of combining pink and green together like this, and I think it only works on these lovely painted lady Victorian houses.  Take your time and look at the details on this house and all of the Historic Victorian houses shown today.
