Willand Toussaint House, 1881, Second Empire-stick Style hybrid
With everyone doing the 10 year aging challenge, I thought I'd revive this old but goody. My architect parents built me a Victorian dollhouse 20 years ago, but it was put aside when they moved. Recently they pulled it out again to fix it up. Boy has it stood the age of time! I'm a lucky girl.
John N. Bagley House
Address: 881/2921 E. Jefferson
Architect: Rogers & MacFarlane
John N. Bagley (1860-1929) was the son of John J. Bagley, businessman and former Michigan governor. It was only natural that the junior Bagley would join the family business. In 1883, he became president of the business started by his father, the Mayflower Tobacco Company. Bagley was also involved in various civic and political affairs. A Republican, he was a member of the delegation that nominated William Howard Taft at the 1908 Republican National Convention in Chicago.
When Bagley decided to build a home on picturesque Jefferson Avenue, he approached the firm of Rogers and MacFarlane. The Bagley residence is a 2½-story French Renaissance Revival style dwelling with Richardsonian Romanesque overtones. The exterior is made of red brick and brownstone trim. The round tower and large conical roof are characteristics of Richardsonian architecture. The stone entrance was carved by noted Detroit sculptor Julius T. Melchers. Inside, the living room was finished in English oak, the dining room in Santa Domingo mahogany. Melchers also carved the mantels in both rooms.
It was long believed that Henry Hobson Richardson's successors, Shepley, Rutan & Coolidge, were possibly the architects of the home.
In early 2016, the Bagley residence became home to Beautiful Bridal, a bridal boutique owned by consultant and television star Keasha Rigsby. #Detroit #Eastside #RivertownDetroit #FrenchRenaissanceRevival #RomanesqueRevival #RichardsonianRomanesque #VictorianArchitecture #EastJefferson #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #casasecasarios #houses_ofthe_world #beautifulhouseoldandnew #TheAmericanHome #houseportrait #BrickStory #RawDetroit #PureMichigan #PureMittigan #MotorCityShooters #PureDetroit313 #DepictTheD #VisitDetroit #Michiganders #ThisPlaceMatters #ThisPlaceMattersDetroit #MichiganPlacesMatter
Bayview-Hunters Point. Running down Quesada Avenue, an elderly African American man in a wheelchair lifts his left arm to high five me. He reminded me of my dad. The neighborhood covers 4.8 square miles of land in the southeast section of San Francisco. It’s a beautiful parcel of land. I love to spend time here. The 1940 census reads there were less than 5,000 blacks living in San Francisco. Shortly thereafter, when WWI began, that number catapulted to nearly 50,000. The war industry brought African-Americans from across the south, many to work in the navy shipyard. Wartime Hunters Point, an economically thriving community. I took this picture Sunday afternoon on Lasalle Avenue. The house was built in 1900 and by the looks of it, that’s a 1970s Ford F100. I’m a bit obsessed with the history, people, architecture and vibe of the neighborhood, and this particular spot keeps calling me back. After my run I met a friend at All Good Pizza (A++). When I got home I learned there were two fatal shootings the day prior on Lasalle. One, a father of four, had young kids like many of us do. #sanfranciscorunningeverystreet #ford100
Over here at turretime we love all turrets whether they be grandiose or modest, in perfect condition or in disrepair. 📍: Lakeview
🏠: Built in 1895, with definite Queen Anne touches on the turret and the oriel windows.
Fun Fact: This house is on Fletcher street, which was named after the owners of Fletcher Brothers, a firm of contractors specifically dealing with cut-stone. The brothers were born in England. Isaac, the longest surviving brother, apprenticed with a stone cutter for 7 years before moving to the US in 1858. He settled in Chicago and the business was born in 1872. They built many multi-family homes in the Lakeview area.
I happened across this incredible house in Suffern in my travels today. It lies on a main road and is clearly more “lived-in” than restored... which, IMHO, only adds to its charm.
Since I first sat down to draw the plans for the roof of my own verandah, I have been intrigued as to how our forebears constructed 'complex' valleys. When a simple gable intersects a the curved profile roofing, most Victorian verandahs were graced with, I figured that the valley rafter would need to have a 'compound' shape. That is, it would need to be curved in both plan and elevation.
Over the last few years I have been checking out all the different examples I have come across. Whether the roofing is bullnosed, concave, convex or ogee, as in this beautiful house in Williamstown, the construction methods have all been the same.
In plan, (if viewed vertically from above) the finished valley is straight. The valley rafter fully matches the main roof profile and the gabled roof is then simply twisted to conform. Quite oddly, this 'twisting' never seems to be discernible.

De retour après une « pause post » de près d’un mois. Cela m’a permis de réfléchir à l’usage que je fais de ce réseau social et à mesurer le temps que j’y consacre. Maison construite en 1867 sur la rue Tupper. Cette voie, ouverte officiellement en 1873, a été nommée en mémoire de Sir Charles Tupper (1821-1915), un des pères de la confédération canadienne et premier ministre du Canada en 1896. ❄️
Back after an IG post break of almost a month. This allowed me to think about the use I make of this social network, and to measure the time I spend on it. House built in 1867 on Tupper Street. This street, officially opened in 1873, is named after Sir Charles Tupper (1821-1915), one of the fathers of Confederation and Prime Minister of Canada in 1896.
