That is a great looking building Valerie! I saw a Tudor looking house down in Florida that had an English postbox in the garden. I wanted to knock on the door and see if they were English. I didn't because I'm English of course :) heaven forbid!

Cool old building. Any you see here in the states is certainly copies.

Quaint building. What is it - an apartment building?

Valerie said...

I don't know what it is used for now, Mona, but it is one of the early Tudor houses dating back a few centuries.

Valerie said...

Brian, I wish we had more buildings this style, it has so much more character than our modern buildings.

Valerie said...

Oh Denise, you should have knocked! Isn't it strange how we copy each other, over here the trend is for US style postboxes.

Valerie said...

Thanks, BC. I love that you're a staunch supporter of anything English.

Valerie, I love the Tudor-look to this building!

We have an area in Philadelphia (Society Hill/Old City) which has some of the most quaint buildings; very influenced by English style and architecture. And I LOVE it!

I clicked to enlarge your photo and noticed the Starbucks on the left. OMG...Starbucks are EVERYWHERE, aren't they?

Have a lovely day, dear lady!

X to you and Joe!

Valerie said...

Hey. Ron, it's great that you have some Tudor buildings in Philly. Are they as quaint as the one in the picture? Yes, my friend, Starbucks get everywhere and you know what ... I never use one.

Montanagirl's pictures are extraordinary! She must have the patience of a saint and a hand as steady as a robot.

I love that style of architecture. If I ever get a round tuit I'm going to do a building of that style in Blender 3D.

Very cool pic! It's funny what sort of architecture survives into the modern world. I wonder, what style of architecture is this? It's a beautiful place!

Mel said...

It amazes me they're still standing, even if there is a bit of a lean. We don't have any architecture quite that old....we're still a young country. LOL!!

Valerie said...

Hi Herman, the house was built in Henry VIII's reign, hence the name Tudor. I've no doubt it's been patched up a few times.
