another Oakland Victorian

This large Victorian Italianate building still holds court on International Blvd. and 13th Avenue.  This style was popular between the 1860s through the 1890s.  It's hard to tell whether or not this was originally a single family dwelling.  It now functions as a retail store with apartments above.  If you look carefully, you can see a little boy looking out the corner window.  This is one of hundreds of Victorian era structures still in use in Oakland.


  1. In case you didn't already know it, Alameda has more surviving Victorians than San Francisco!

  2. The window framing is so nice, and so many windows. Reminds one that light at all hours is not a given. :)

  3. Must be well made. Withstood the test of time.
