An Old House in Taipei – Or Not?
It’s hard to write a blog post the day after the Taipei Metro knife attack. So I decided to just upload a few pictures I took one or two days before I left Taiwan in February.
These are the pictures of a building I’ve always been curious about. It has an old-style tile rooftop and it looks quite old. Since it’s located inside a courtyard separated from the street by a wall I couldn’t see much except for the roof.
The house is in Roosevelt Road in Taipei, and I’ve always wondered if it’s really an old one or not. My dream is that it’s a Japanese or Qing-dynasty house, and that we can save it from its decay. But I’m pretty sure it’s just a dream, because the whole area is modern, with nearly no exception (but there are a few, which I hope to show in the future).
I would like to meet some local Taiwanese who know something about this building. But so far, that, too, has been a dream.
