In each of my groups of cottage pictures there are cottages that I know will be torn down within weeks. I’ll keep you updated.

Please note as you look how the majority of cottages are lovingly well-kept. It isn’t easy to keep a hundred-plus year old house well-kept.

One day while on a walk I noted two cottages side by side that had “for sale” signs in the front yard. The next time I walked past they were tearing the cottages down. So I thought, why not put pictures up of all the cottages still existing. I’m not adding addresses because that isn’t cool. Unless the cottage is torn down, then I will add the address as a requiem.

This is the first set of cottage pictures for you to look at and hope it isn’t the last time to see them. More will follow as I make my way around the neighborhood.

This is a new old house. You can see the mix of old and newer townhouses behind it.

This may be the house that was Cary Grant's favorite home in Houston. It feels Art Deco in style.
