Victorian home in Benton County, Oregon

This looks like is was built as a very simple farm house and then got some upgrades like the small elaborate front bay window and the porch woodwork. Makes for a very unusual home.

The title really says it all. A bit faded but a great general view none the less.

Spectacular stone 4 level home

Very faded image with some damage but you can still see that this is one stunner of a building. Mid-West or East Coast to me but the location is unknown.

View of stately residences in Portland Heights

Assortment of quite a number of stately residences in SW Portland's Portland Heights / Council Crest neighborhood. The large Tudor home in the lower left corner with the chamfered dormers was built in 1911 and still stands today as apartments at 1687-1689 SW Montgomery Dr. The large house in the foreground is 1722 SW Vista Ave. The house remains though the shed dormers have been removed. The Sunset Freeway tunnel goes right under the house. All other houses in the photo are either altered or gone including the house with the cool turret.

Unknown location. FOR SALE sign nailed to the house. Unusual sidewalk.

Amazing cast concrete block pront porch

The detail of this house is amazing. From the cast concrete block to the unusual mouldings and adorable dormer, this little house has a lot of style. Unknown location but the photo was taken on May 16th 1920.
