Whimsical Windows - Yale environs




























Toby hosts the unique meme, Whimsical Windows Delirious Doors. In this, we look all about for doors, windows and other interesting architectural details. As we are only a few miles from the city of New Haven, it is old and full of styles from many different eras. The view around Ivy League Yale University is no exception. 


The architecture from then is full of slate, brick, dormers, turrets and windows surrounded by arches. The structure on the right is Welch Hall, built in 1891. I do not have the name of the other. Whatever it may be called, it evokes olde Europe in many ways. In and around an older city, we just need to have our photographic device available to capture it all...

Fascinating architecture! The one on the left looks very much like the style of a blue stone church in inner Melbourne! I can't remember the name of that either! And love the arched windows in the second photo!

It is interesting to see such different styles all together.

Those are very intimidating towers - quite fitting for such an important place! And I love the checkerboard on the top of that one on the left :)
