Painted ladies, San Francisco / by Sagar Mukala

Hello everyone,

Today's post is a tour to Alamo square neighborhood in the city. It hosts one of the oldest homes in San Francisco, built in 1892. It's got a neat little park, with a great view of the Transamerica pyramid. If you wiki Painted Ladies, you'll see, "Painted ladies is a term in American architecture used for Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings painted in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details". You must have seen this postcard many a time, either in movies or TV shows, or if you have a Chase bank account pay attention to the wallpaper on the login screen, a picture of painted ladies shows up every once in a while. One of these homes was bought at $65,000 by it's owner in 1965 and was sold for a whopping 3.1 million dollars last year.

Until next time,
