NOTE: Formerly "Have we seen your staircases?"

Just a thought. Staircases come in different shapes and sizes and used to be a point of interest in your normal stately home (obviously I don't own one!). Mostly staircases are interesting in how they blend in with whatever is around them. i like the way the spiral and the bricks both blend with and contrast with each other on this building.

I knew there'd be some excellent staircase photos around! Lovely!

I'll need to go and look for more. Took a couple in an old lighthouse, but the pictures didn't turn out as well as I'd like.



And here's a staircase from a building site

All nice shots! Now to search for some stairs from around here to add...I love spiraling stairs. I still remember from over thirty years ago, when I was 5, a house my parents looked into buying that had a spiral staircase that would have gone to the upstairs!

Ah, now that's the kind of picture that makes me covet a real wide-angle lens!

Well and what about this.. not really a staircase. It was purposely build like this so it could handle horses and carriages.

I was in the building business in one way or another all my life. I designed a "nickle" stairway I never got to build because it took too much floor space. It was based on the number 5. I am sorry I never got to build one.

A "nickle" in the USA is a 5 cent piece, 1/20th of a dollar called that because of it's original shiny nickle metal content or plating.

Shercando, did you ever build a model you took pictures of? Would love to see it. There's really something very special about staircases!

   No, I am sorry I never built a model of it, just a few sketches. Now that I am retired it may be a good idea to build a model.. Maybe I can sell the idea to someone planning a large home

Sounds like an excellent plan! Sorry I won't be in the market unfortunately - will have to make do with a perfectly ordinary middle class home.
