3549 Victoria

John Boyde House – second wife 1927 – lost depression etc…

Today we head back to South Windsor, and back to Victoria Boulevard, and a look at 3549 Victoria.

This house with the crazy brick work was designed by John Boyde, a partner in the firm of Pennigton & Boyde, as his own personal residence, and as a wedding gift to his second wife in 1927.

With the onset of the depression a few years later, the demand for architectural work dried up, and the Boyde lost the house. The brickwork on this house is unlike any other in the city, and truly shows what Boyde was capable of from a design perspective.
