This most elaborate and eccentric of all Victorian styles is also the most difficult to define and has many variations. In the 1880s and 1890s it was popular throughout North America for large, expensive residences as varied as the “painted ladies” of San Francisco and the brownstones of Brooklyn. Here, the style is common in The Annex and Rosedale.
