As you know, I'm not just about bikes. I also like a nice bit of Roman architecture. On a recent visit to the lovely town of Perth, Ontario, I came across these lovely examples. I wonder what the Romans would think if they could see how far the ideas of their empire stretched.
The McMillan building strikes me as a bit odd. The Roman influence is clear with the triangular pediment and the pilasters with ionic capitals. But the entrance to the building itself is rather drab and certainly not influenced by any Roman order.
Stewart House, on the other hand, is really a wonder in this small town. Beautiful fluted columns with Corinthian capitals and a striking pediment set this house off well.
Columns of the Ionic order at the side of the house make for a wonderful veranda. Stewart House once belonged to the town's richest family. Safe to say, they appreciated fine architecture.
