I spent some time in the tiny Karoo town of Aberdeen again visiting family. I love the quaintness & simplicity of the town because it harks back to a time long gone!
The Tourist Information leaflet informs us that Aberdeen has some unique architectural styles - not that I can identify them with any certainty but these are the ones they named:
One thing I really love is the wide stoeps or verandas so essential to life in the Karoo. The stifling hot summers mean that they are essential to surviving the heat.
How lovely is this detail on this house?
1897 with intricate metal work as well as towers that could be Russian or Gothic ...
Even the metal fence echoes the details on the house ...
There is a hint of Dutch architecture here as well as turrets & broekie lace details on the stoep ...
Thank you for stopping by, taking time to read & even leave a comment.
