More interesting images. Lots of life and vitality.

I like the look of those american-style water hydrants that I have seen in quite a few of your pictures

Thanks again, Jane.

Chadoh, these pics are from last winter. We didn't get that much snow this week. At least, not in my area. It was much further as you go north and away from the coast. We just got enough to cover the grass and is now melting. You can see some of our current snow on my Salem/Halloween thread.

Charlestown was settled in the 1620s with many colonial-era buildings to show for it. Named after King Charles I, it lies at the mouth of the Charles River. Charlestown is now a neighborhood of Boston, but once was it's own city and capital of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. After the Irish potato famine of the 1840's, Charlestown became a stronghold of Irish working-class families. It is now heavily gentifried with upper-middle class/professional types. In the 1960s, 'urban renewal' forces wanted to clear 60% of the neighborhood for new development. Fortunately, it was voted down and only 11% was cleared. There appears to be some public housing around the fringe, which I suspect is a result of that 11% that was cleared.

There are, certainly, lots of terrace/row houses in these pictures.

It reminds me of the Alamo Square area of San Francisco - are you familiar with SF?

Very close to the city centre - yet, pleasant residential streets - and because of the hills, great views and perspectives.

Yes, there are plenty of terraced houses here. I tend to call them townhouses. It seems we have different names for them. Sometimes the terms are interchangeable and sometimes have different connations, depending on where we are from. For me, the term 'rowhouse' has a working class sound.

And yes, I can see the SF comparison in regards to Charlestown.

I love San Francisco - the only U.S city that I have been to.
