Unreconstructed Dormer

I spotted this original Victorian dormer in a house in Hartington Street. All the other dormers in the street have been replaced long singe, many with wretched UPVC units. I think this one is rather lovely and it’s just a shame that it hasn’t been kept in good condition.

Note the non-functional streetlight…

  1. I agree, a lovely window. They knew how to build back when…

  2. Wonderful. It almost makes me want to drive over with a ladder and give it a lick of paint. Mind you, my memory of Hartington Street is that it would need to be a long ladder.

  3. I can only apologise for cutting and pasting this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise. It pains me to admit that I am a mere mortal and that the magical elves on my staff have little respect for my authority (let alone my preference for minimum wage). Consequently, all they seem to do is sit around drinking beer, playing cards and throwing rocks at the reindeer!

    Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

    I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, and may your stocking be stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal, that all your soufflés rise as you would like, and that all of your presents are free of lead-based paint!
