Re: Dark Green Floor

We just moved from Montréal, so I can do it for you... Jaspé! :-) Thanks a bunch for the tip--looking at a couple other pictures I took, and looking for it on the web, yes, it probably was original. That must have been pretty cutting edge for back then...lineoleum, and built-in vacuum system... :-) ...

Wall Treatment Suggestions

While the current wallpaper needs to go, my wife and I are a little stumped. We think lighter is better because the wood in the house is so dark, but we're afraid that the effect will look as unappealing as what's on there now. thanks! jeff http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r104/jeff_w_47/New%20Hou...

Dark Green Floor

The kitchen and pantry of the 1910 house we are looking at has this incredibly-tough, stuff on the floor, which I'm assuming is some kind of linoleum. This couldn't be original, could it?
thanks!

Bathroom Circa...?

We're looking at making an offer on a place, but don't have a lot of info on the history. House was built 1910-12. Is this bathroom original? Thanks for any help! jeff http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r104/jeff_w_47/New%20House/bath_02.jpg http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r104/jeff_w_47/New%20Ho...

Re: What Style?

Took some quick pics this afternoon--not the greatest, but better detail than the three smalls:

Re: What Style?

I appreciate all the comments--thanks! Here's the church (our place is just a few pixels to the right): http://www.imtl.org/image/big/DSCN3067.jpg Glass is all original, amazingly enough, as is the celing in the main room (pictured). I'm afraid to touch it as the moulding is plaster. Floor in that r...

Re: What Style?

Glad you find it as interesting as I do. Looks like we'll be closing in August. :-)

After a bit of research, it appears to have been built in 1911 by P. D. Gordon a year after the church next door. Must have been fairly well off to have been able to afford this place.

Digging continues...

Re: What Style?

Yep, always a residence, and it's right across the street from this huge Gothic-Revival Anglican church. Apparently, they're actually not sure about the date--some time between 1880 and 1914. :-) It was originally all one piece, but it had been divided in the '50s into multiple apartments. Now, down...

What Style?

Hi All, We're looking to buy the lower unit of this building in Westmount, Canada which is supposed to date to 1902. Doesn't appear to match the "Edwardian" pics I've found... http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r104/jeff_w_47/House/house_1.jpg http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r104/jeff_w_47/House/...
