In American architecture, painted ladies are Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings repainted, starting in the 1960s, in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details. The term was first used for San Francisco Victorian houses by writers Elizabeth Pomada and Michael Larsen in their 1978 book Painted Ladies: San Francisco's Resplendent Victorians. Although polychrome decoration was common in the Victorian era, the colors used on these houses are not based on historical precedent. Puzzle measures 19.25 x 26.6 inches completed.

I am from San Francisco so my daughter and I loved doing the puzzle. When we finished we drove to San Francisco and took pictures of the painted ladies. The puzzle was more impressive. The houses needed a paint job. Very bland. My daughter is going to hang it up on her wall. Loved it
