I Spy Hanover

Hanover is a district of victorian terraces. Small, similar, constrained. Tightly squeezed; no front yard. Made of bungaroosh.

It could all be drab and colourless and all the same. But happily it’s not.  It’s not only the choice of colour, but also the additions and adornments.  Some features part of the original designs of the houses, to offer some individuality amongst general conformity; others added by past and present occupiers.

Every street has treasures: the images above a small selection of captures so far.

  1. There are loads, aren’t there. A few more.

    I recall the house on Hanover Terrace with painted windows and a smiling face. Not there now. http://www.mybrightonandhove.org.uk/page_id__5792.aspx

    And there is that one on Albion Hill, next to the Albion pub with the strange icon. That’s been there 30 years?
