A Triple View of a Troyes Quartet

As you come out of the a street of Troyes and come into the main square at the center of town your eye is immediately drawn to a quartet of half timbered houses across the square, set next to each other like a column of soldiers. 

They bear a remarkable resemblance to the row of ancient homes in Bergen Norway, and indeed they both date from the 14th and 15th century, sway to the beat of gravity's slow moving forces and angular decay, are brightly colored...and the Devil Dog couldn't resist putting a tryptych of picture together of our favorite quartet of homes in Troyes.
