Nova Scotia Narrowest House

The narrowest huose in Nova Scotia

You are seeing the Nova Scotia narrowest house, which is on Argyle Street in Halifax. (I don’t know how old these buildings are, but the street itself is over 200 years old). The tiny blue house with one window on it is a touristic attraction on this historic street of Nova Scotia’s largest city, in Atlantic Canada. It used to be home to “Seahorse Tavern” at the time we were living there. Later, the owner lost his lease and now it’s hosting the “Sniggily Wiggily’s – Beer N’ Boosze Concreatery”. I know that this is a weird name for a place to drink and eat, but sometimes Canadians get creative πŸ™‚ And to see even more of their creativity, next door at the yellow Cafe Bar, a young lady made of plaster is looking out the window…

I actually photographed these buildings from two slightly different angles, and this is the second one:

As I got the microbe of digital painting, I also applied a painting feature to them for a more artistic / creative look. Well, I’m a Canadian – by adoption πŸ™‚

I’ve seen many narrow houses in old Europe, but not too many in North America… Actually this was the first and only one πŸ™‚ It is not only narrow, but I like its blue color contrasting with the red and yellow buildings that frame it. I have to say it again that Canadians reallyΒ  like colors πŸ™‚
