The Painted Ladies

in travel •  3 months ago

Today I visited The Painted Ladies, beautiful wooden houses in San Francisco.

In American architecture, painted ladies are Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings repainted, starting in the 1960s, in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details. The term was first used for San Francisco Victorian houses by writers Elizabeth Pomada and Michael Larsen in their 1978 book Painted Ladies: San Francisco's Resplendent Victorians (Wikipedia).
