I’ll be leaving Halifax, NS in a few days, and let me tell you this: I will really miss the old-timey houses in the older parts of the city. In my last post, I showed you a few funny things in my neighborhood.
Halifax is a cool city, for one thing because it’s one of the oldest large cities in Canada (it was settled by the British in 1749 as a counter naval base to the French at Fort Louisbourg in Cape Bretonsource), which means there are a number of stately residences in the areas that surround downtown. Some of these stately residences have been well-kept, and others have suffered from the difficult Haligonian weather (“If you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes!”). These houses appear to me either as dollhouses or haunted houses.
Today we’ll have a look at just a few of the jolly houses in my neighborhood—any of which I would be happy to see in miniature form.
I was going to put captions under all of them, but I trust your sensibilities.
I just adore the combination of delightful, bright colors and turn-of-the-centure architecture.
I had so many photos! These are my favorites, but it was difficult to narrow it down. Do you have a favorite?
Hold tight for my next post, in which i plan to share photos of (what I imagine to be) haunted houses!
