This has to be one thing I really like doing.
Into the architecture big time, and you can tell a lot how they lived back then.
I always think..''If these walls could talk''?
It is something I believe everyone can and should do in life, esp if you have children of school age.
It's the concept of something so old surviving that I enjoy as much as the buildings themselves.
I was staying with relatives in Riverton, SA a few months back and picked up a heritage trail walk booklet from the historical society. There were some 70 buildings on the list, most of them private residences now.
I enjoy the art in these buildings and it never ceases to amaze me at times how brilliant some of these buildings are. I loved the European churches for example and couldn't get enough of them. The comment was made to me that I mustbe sick of looking at them but each one is different so nothing tiring there. Also castkes intrigue me as well. We have some historical homes and buildings in the area I live in in Western Sydney and one home in particular that I would love to own which has the lace pattern wrought iron trimming around a large verandah and a tin roof hidden behind a hedge that has old cars and rubbish in the front yard and on the verandah. It breaks my heart to see this at what once was a beautiful home.
Yes love old classic buildings.
My home County in England was Warwickshire with a lot of history and historical buildings such as Warwick Castle and Stratford upon Avon the home of Shakespeare, plus many other places.
