Victorian Architecture

I brought my camera while walking today so I could take some shots of the lovely Victorian architecture we have in Kingsville. Being in an old neighbourhood, there are many Queen Anne style homes close by. Passing these massive buildings I can’t help but think of Jane Austen and her use of interior space — drawing rooms, towers, closets, secret tunnels and chambers, domestic spaces configured in ways that reveal character interiority.
