It’s easy being green: architectural character downtown Gloucester

Cat Ryan submits-

19th, 20th and 21st Century green in the mix

From the distinguished Cape Ann Museum’s fresh coat of paint and ongoing preservation

To many weathered, copper-clad architectural details like these rare repeat oriel windows

Elegant oriels along Parsons’ pedestrian street, too, though no pressed metal. But look up for the green tiled roof!

Creating a nice umbra mix alongside the newish-ish green exterior for the Jeff Weaver/Restoration Works, 16 Rogers Street –  the newcomer (former Old Timers/Catch 22/Fiesta Pub) joins the green in Gloucester. Check out its distinct porthole window on the door.

Then and then: 16 Rogers before photos (green middle elements against textured and well acclimated exterior).
