Painted Ladies (Victorian)

                                                                  Victorian Painted Lady

The “Painted Ladies” term was coined in 1978 in a book about the colorful Victorian houses of San Francisco. The houses were built between 1846 and 1901 during the Victorian era. After Queen Victoria died in 1901 the the Eduardian era continued the style until about 1926.
Many thousands of these homes were destroyed in the San Francisco earthquake of 1905 but many more in the areas south of the city survived.
