Downtown Window

Some of the older buildings downtown that were built before air conditioning, have shaded verandahs, sometimes hidden behind decorative wrought iron screens like the one below. The verandahs built right up against the streets or sidewalks must have been in, their time, the site of much socializing and would have been a pleasant place to appreciate the coolness of summer nights after blistering hot days.  This particular building was once a hotel but is now owned by the Arizona Theater Company.
And by the way, I really like this photo from Aukland Daily Photo.

  1. There’s really nothing like the classic look of decorative iron in a home or garden, it’s timeless!
