Ruby Tuesday - Tons of bricks

Ruby Tuesday brings me to somewhere in New Haven. I am not certain, but believe it to be in the city somewhere in the neighborhood around Trumbull Street at Orange Street.

The predominant industry around here seems to be former large homes converted into offices staffed by attorneys, CPAs or Yale University. 

All the buildings seem to be from a period of say 1890 - 1910, where details highlighted the architectural style of the era.

The rich details range from the tile roofs to Victorian gingerbread. Of course, the red brick facade qualifies as a ruby, so it is my choice.

Mary's meme is both lively and colorful in many splendid rubies. See reds in many iterations at this meme!

It's beautiful and well preserved.

Happy RT!

The arches, the balcony and the somewhat unstable looking chimney, they all appeal to my unpractical, but hopelessly romantic side.
It's a wonderful gingerbread cake of a mansion. I'd love to live there.

What a wonderful old building. The shapes are so, well, shapely.

It really is a lovely old building with lots of interesting details.

They sure don't make them like that any more.
