Victorian Architecture Bank

I personally love these structures, and I would love to see somebody currently actually build more of them instead of the low quality stuff they make now. Even Most architecture posts on here seem to forget this pinnacle of architectural history. The Point of this thread though, is to post some of the most beautiful examples around, and keep them all in one thread.

I'm a big fan of Victorian architecture, too. I used to think it was garish and a conglomeration of decoration but I have grown very fond of its over-the-top enthusiasm and eccentricity.

I love victorian architecture! Here in Indiana (and the midwest for that matter) there is a plethora of victorian and folk victorian buildings.
