Photo Du JourStuccoWindsor

Stucco Friday

Today’s entry was sent in by regular reader Urbanrat. His email to me read as follows:

I know how much you love stucco! I found this stucco palace at 809 Bruce. The house is vacant, it must be the place the stucco boys of Windsor apprenticed!

The last photograph is of the rear of the building, look to the unfinished stucco work on the centre wall, they didn’t even use a square or a plumb line to match the wall at the left.

Also notice the infilled in ground pool.

It has to be nominated for the worst attempt at stuccoing in Windsor!

Yikes! This one is pretty bad… Thanks to Urbanrat for sharing this mess with the rest of us!
