Photographer's Note

I know... is the same trivial picture from Alamo Square in Frisco... BUT... I couldn't resist to post this foggy version. I LOVE Frisco!!!!!!!!
Forgive me...
A little note on these houses: these are the world known 6 visctorian houses which still stood up after the famous 1906 earthquake, a tipical Frisco landmark. The six Queen Anne-style houses were completed in 1895.

"Victorian architecture, known for its complex structure and massive embellishments, is based on the architectural style popular during the reign of Queen Victoria in England. In the United States Victorian houses were mostly built between 1850 and 1915.
San Francisco Victorian architecture was influenced by cultures from all over the world as people came to settle here. One can see medieval Carpenter Gothics, impressive French palaces, Turkish towers, exuberant Italian architecture, and regal Queen Annes all over The City. Victorian houses, an elite architectural art form, have always been a symbol of the taste and status of their owners. Home owners and Victorian enthusiasts in San Francisco have decorated their houses with embellishments and painted them in rainbow colors, thus earning their Victorians a popular American designation - painted ladies. More specifically painted ladies is a term often used for a row of Victorian houses situated along Steiner Street on Alamo Square in San Francisco — also known as Postcard Row."
