    A few shots of the "Bishop's Palace" on Broadway in Galveston.

    From texasoutside.com:
    Originally known as Gresham's Castle, the home was erected in 1886 at an estimated cost of $250,000 by Colonel Walter Gresham, a wealthy Galveston attorney. Designed ny a well-known architect, Nicholas Clayton, it is built from native Texas granite, white limestone and red sandstone, all cut and shaped on the premises. Many rare woods, like rosewood, satinwood, white mahogony, American oak and maple were used for the interior, hand-carved woodwork. Massive sliding doors are unique in that the wood surface on each side of the door matches the room it faces.

    It seems like they're all cropped too tightly at the bottom, but other than that I agree with what DragonHeart said.

    Can't argue with the close crop critique but it was either that or have a nice photo of the bright yellow SUV parked in front. You can just see the top in pic #3 (under the sign).
