I took some photos of homes in several historic neighborhoods so that folks can see that Phoenix is not all granite and cactus, Mesquite and Agave.
The styles of the homes are eclectic; California Bungalow, English Tudor, Spanish Revival, Classic Bungalow, Ranch, Spanish Colonial, Craftsman, Period Revival, Prairie, and Tudor Revival.
Most all the historic homes are one story, but in the oldest neighborhoods, a few two-story homes, such as this Spanish Colonial, are more common.
You can see a typical two-strip driveway on the right. Most of these narrow driveways originally lead to a small garage in the back yard. Notice the sculpted shrubs, another common sight.
The tree on the left began as some type of cypress shrub 70 or 80 years ago. As it grew, it was trimmed into a tree shape. This is another common sight in these old neighborhoods. I really don't like these tree/shrubs at all. They always have sprouts along every branch.
