I walked downtown today and took a few more photos:
This townhouse is fairly plain looking from the outside, except for the doors, but we went through it when it was for sale about seven years ago, and it’s really magnificent inside.
Same doors, just from a different angle.
This townhouse didn’t look too good just a couple of years ago, but someone has been putting some work into it.
In case you hadn’t noticed, I happen to like great entryways and doors. These are the doors on 29 West Broadway. It looks like there was some damage done to the bottom of one of them, which has been covered with a small metal plate. Due to how far down the molding comes, they won’t find stock antique brass kickplates to fit it, but they could get some and have them cut down. And while it doesn’t show in this photograph, the transom window is etched glass, with a big “29” in the center.
Someone refloored their front porch on Broadway, with unstained wood (looks like mahogany to me) and new wrought iron railing.
Xion is SPC Pico’s cat (and my first grandcat). He’s supposed to be an inside kitty, since he will normally be living in her apartment at State College when she’s in school, but he went out into our backyard to explorigate¹ today.
Our backyard, looking southeast, in the evening. Because of the angle of the sunlight, it looks like fall foliage outside our yard! The tree that looks slightly orange is actually a mature Japanese red maple. You can see a small Japanese maple in our yard that we planted a couple of years ago.
¹ – A Picoism, not a typo.
