Picardy Drive is near Mills College and is known for two things---its over the top holiday lights display every Christmas and its architecture. Most of the homes on this street are built in what is called Storybook Style, developed in the early 1920s. Houses in this style typically have towers, pitched roofs, half timbers in stucco, rounded doorways, and stylized use of brick. Storybook can be found in two or three small developments and many individual homes around town. This picture was taken before today's rain storm arrived.
