Thirties fashion

A "thirties" house - perhaps the only one built in Piketberg - has survived and after becoming almost derelict, has recently been restored. It's inappropriate to the area, climatically and aesthetically, and one of the very few that are double-storied. I think it would be most uncomfortable to live in when the summer temperatures climb into the forties, as they often do here - but it certainly brings variety to the little town.

As you said, and the dreadful air conditioners confirm it. But a nice simple design in line perhaps with its time... Cheers Shelagh!

Bonsoir Shelagh !
C'est un beau bâtiment, et la couleur est surprenante...
