Rooftop Fence #2

 Definitely not a widow's walk unless the widow is a Lilliputian

Not sure what this decorative fencing is for. Perhaps it to keep pigeons from falling off the roof?

 To guard against ________  (fill in the blank)

Pure "gingerbread" is my guess. It's attractive, but I'm sure glad I don't have to maintain it. :-)

It's very well designed, even for pigeons too... health and safety wise!

Andy said...

Pretty darn fancy.

Buttons said...

Yes I believe it to keep those falling pigeons safe:) Great shots. Hug B

Maybe the decorative fencing is for decoration! Beautiful house.

Neat house!

To guard against Tom Cruise of course. The demented couch hopper is too short to get over those.

the house is wonderful... i am thinking back in the day, they wanted to use the popular ironwork and that ws the only place to add it..

edenhills said...

I don't know what it's for, but it does look nice.

Those old houses are just so artfully built, it's all about the look for them. Love it!

Linda W. said...

It may not serve any purpose, but the fencing is pretty.

Judy said...

It reminds me of a doll house for some reason. It's a grand old place.

Gail Dixon said...

I guess it's just there for decoration. It does look like an area where birds could gather and have a party. :)

RedPat said...

It's a grand house, EG!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I love the old houses like this.They have so much more character than new homes.

Stuart said...

To guard against... normalcy ?! ...boredom ?! ... the ordinary ?!

House 'candy' !!! And it's a beautiful house.

It's a unique house+fence, for sure. Saw from TexWisGirl that you are Canadian, so I thought I would click.

Susan said...

Quite different... wouldn't mind seeing inside :D)

Karen said...

Love the fence at the top, love the house even more!

nookworm said...

Very decorative elements on a lovely house. Pretty!

Ida said...

That is a cool looking house. I do like the decorative fencing. Gives the place "character."

Pamela Gordon said...

What a great old house! I love all the wood trim on it and the wrought iron fences. I guess they're just decorative.

bailey-road.com said...

The wrought iron trim is beautiful, even if it is only decorative.

Brian King said...

Very ornate!

RobinfromCA said...

Whatever it's for it is just beautiful! Painting it after the weather has done it's damage wouldn't be very much fun though!

Naquillity said...

what a beautiful place. i like the idea of the fence saving the falling pigeons, :) hope all is well. have a great day~

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Such a beautiful house! Would love to see the inside, too.
