Love it! I just moved from Oakland back to Canada... I loved the old houses there.

me too! we lucked out getting this Edwardian. Almost ended up in one of those new (but not so charming) condos that have started popping up near downtown.

hope Canada is treating you well. Despite its many problems, Oakland can be a hard place to leave.
