I went to Providence today to have lunch with a friend, check out some shops and order my tickets for the Providence Preservation Society House Tour on June 7th. Here are some random pictures from the Benefit Street area which is one of the oldest parts of Providence. Note how close the houses are to the street. No way to avoid getting cars in the photos!! Click to enlarge, if you like.
Love this door, which appears to be later than the house
Charming Georgian (Adam) Colonial
These appear to be painted showerheads...public art??
Toasty on the third floor, if it ever gets warm here
Love these colors with the faded brick
Showy front door
This IS the front door, I checked the other side..no door.
A perfect example of Greek Revival architecture
Greek Revival with Victorian addition
I love this color combo and this shot. Lovely dappled light...almost
artistic except for the darned car. Drat!
Thanks for all your comments and suggestions about my dilemma. I think I have it figured out.
Edited to add: Melissa at The Inspired Room is going to be doing a Drive-bys Around the World Post sometime soon. If you do any drive-bys link back to her for an upcoming post.
