Before I get into my first blog entry of the year I want to show you something. As you may know my book The Bond, A Paranormal Love Story is being published in Turkey. I received the cover over the Christmas break and I want to share it with all of you.
Now I'll take you back to Shaugnessy and look at a few homes there.
The house was designed by architects Sharp and Thompson in 1912.
This Craftsman house on Granville Street was also built in 1912. It was designed by architect H. Murray.
As you can see it has a hipped roof with deep overhanging eaves and brackets as well as a shingled upper storey and an irregularly coursed stone base cladding.
Members of the John Westaway Society, a philosophical association, lived in the house 1960s and 1970s. Now it is a private residence.
It is good to be back and I hope you find the beauty around you.
