This row of homes up there has to be the most photographed homes in San Francisco.
This is the famous block of homes in Alamo square. The square is of course,in front of these homes,and on a hilly mound. Which makes for also a small glimpse of Downtown.
I have seen postcards which were with those buildings towering over this quaint block… I’m wondering if they must have brought a ladder to do that. Because ours is the normal view. I guess the pros keep their secrets.
Below,are two other old wooden homes. Enjoy the details!
What I like are the windows… I could have easily imagined myself sitting on a window bench inside reading or surfing the net.If we ever go back,we have to find a B&B in one these type of homes 🙂
Happy weekend friends,and see you soon for more!!
