Wanted to illustrate the simple aesthetic properties of victorian architecture; the ground/floor building materials, the brick work, the ornate street lamps and damp/aging that comprise 19th century urban environments.
The victorian era is my favourite period for architecture. Urban housing was simple or even crude in its design but due to the combination of building materials and aging (and the way those materials age) we get an incredible aesthetic which we may never see in architecture again.
