Mary's House

We walk past this house all the time and wonder about the spiky fencing! So I went and got this book at the library. I love to read history.





Several of you commented on the fence I photographed and posted the other day on how "unfriendly" that fence looked. Here it is again:

In comparison to the next photo....that one suddenly looks awful nice and friendly and welcoming all of a sudden doesn't it? HA HA LOL


I dont think they are open to visitors today, what do you think? Who wants to try to go up and ring their bell? Not me!

Next door:

I love to photograph all the textures and patterns of old brick, iron, wood, chipping paint and architecture that is dripping with history. I can keep busy for hours roaming our city streets, alleys, cemeteries, and churchyards doing just that.

  1. Wow- That spike fence is just scary looking, isn't it? It sure would keep trespassers out...or escaping husbands from getting away. xo Diana

  3. oh, my goodness! the most intense wrought iron i've ever seen! reminds me of the razor wire at prison yards! yikes! thanks for sharing that amazing find!

    as for your question on how cold it gets in ne tx, during the snowstorms we had the past couple of weeks, we were in low 20s, but we often get into teens during winter time.

  4. I like that spiky fence (on a photo:)
    But I wouldn't want to live there or
    go in as a visitor. Nope!

    stuff like that, have a nice one in

  10. My word, that doesn't say welcome does it! I'm like you and love to take photos of the architecture, columns, beams etc but as for spiky fences I think that one wins the prize! Take care x
