I took these while staying in Eureka, CA. It is a pretty town with some unique and interesting architecture. I do not know if I am allowed to post a link or not but it is a link to wikipedia about the two mansions.
Look at the detail work and imagine doing it all with hand or human powered tools.
There is a working wood shop/museum in town that has a huge collection of human powered tools of the type used on this building. If anyone is interested, I have pictures of it also. I do not know if this is the forum to post this type of thing. If not could someone tell me where to post pictures??
