Theme Day: Wood

Dom Porokhovshikov
This mansion was built in 1872 for a wealthy businessman. In 1873, it won an award at the World Exhibition in Vienna. Unfortunately, the house across the street was knocked down, so this is the only angle I can get of this beautiful building (hence the construction signs on the right side of the picture!). Below is a close up of some of the detail that's carved all around the house.
