Earlier today I drove to Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where I saw some nice old Victorian houses. I thought I’d share a few which typify the area.
Here’s one which was surrounded by trees:

And here’s one which wasn’t:

The temperature was well into the nineties. Here’s one which reflects the heat:

Unlike most of the Victorians in California, these places have seen extremes of hot and cold, and are none the worse for wear.
They remind me of the first car I ever bought (a prewar 1941 Plymouth), because they’re built to last.
