Terraced

Its not all Regency Georgian townhouses in Cheltenham, there are plenty of areas that encapsulate different architectural styles. These terraced houses in the Fairview area of town are typical of the turn of the last century. They were built for the working classes, crammed into the tiny space, giving a high density of affordable housing. Now these same houses are sold as town centre living and are home to all sorts of different classes. How times change.

I've always wanted to live in one of these....I recall the scene from 'Love Actually' where Hugh Grant is looking for the girl he's fallen in love with, and goes around to different doors in a neighborhood (perhaps) like this one.

This building reminds me of a fire station! hehe...

I guess some olden firestations look like this.

It is kind of funny how things change, living conditions that were once for the poorer people, are now high rent! Love all the different patterns in the photo! I had a dream about you last night, can't really remember what it was about, but you were in it, isn't that funny?!

It was extremely interesting for me to read that article. Thank you for it. I like such themes and everything that is connected to this matter. I definitely want to read more soon.
