Portland


Last week I spent some time with the the helpful people (thanks Darren)
they showed me a list of houses built by 
my ancestor George Sedgwick.
(He also built the original Town Hall in 1863, which now houses the History Group, and they told me he wrote his name on the inside of the front doors).

These are my own pics of his earliest Portland project:
 5-7 Tyers Street, now a B&B called
Victoria House
(that link has better photos than mine)
Old Sedgwicks 14" skirting boards and beautiful door frames are 
just as immaculate as in 1853 when he hammered them in. What a guy.
