Sepia Saturday 201 - vintage postcards of houses

Sometimes Sepia Saturday seems to be feast or famine for me. Glad to report that this is a feast week though, and if anything I have too many pictures to choose from for this week's house theme. So to limit them I thought I'd only include a few classics and a couple of variations on the house theme.

The Headmasters House, Bradfield College

  1. The headmaster's house might be mistaken for a school building in Iowa.
    Is the Old Toll-Bar House where the Toll House cookies come from?

  2. The Palm House looks familiar but I know I haven't been to that one. It just must be a popular architectural style for greenhouses.

  3. That's the first time I've seen a view of Dickens's house.

  4. The Dicken's House has a look of one of my Dicken's Christmas houses -- not what it's called, but it has that Victorian look. Put me to thinking about getting my villiage out-- o, no, it's not even Thanksgiving.

  5. Ha. This reminds me of the recent WDYTYA that I saw where footballer, Gary Lineker is giving a tour of the renovations of his new (old) home and he says it belonged to Charles Dickens. Not the actual Charles Dickens though - somebody else!

  6. I especially like all the bay windows in the Charles Dickens' house. I love bay windows - probably because I grew up in a house with one. I don't have a bay window in my house now - only a bay end to one of the rooms, but I can look across the street to a house with a bay window and that's a nice concession.
