Architectural Details 13


During the Victorian Era, Lunenburg was a thriving town with many shipbuilders who applied their woodworking skills to their homes. Methinks this is one shipbuilder who went a bit overboard.

  1. Very ornate, isn't it. The pink paint probably wasn't what the shipbuilder had in mind, but it's quite pretty.

  3. But why did he stop with the front steps? (And I'm not sure about the pink either.) Excellent shot for the theme.

  9. Why can't they build houses like that today. Well I guess they can for a price.
