Long Description:
Text of the plaque in front of the house :

“Charles Robinson, a carpenter, built this house for himself when Britannia Village was becoming a popular summer community. The building’s irregular roofline, shingled gable ends and upper bvay wrapped by a seven-sided porch with a conical roof, show the influence of the Queen Anne revival style popular at the time for resort architecture.”

Texte de la plaque en avant de la maison :

Charles Robinson, charpentier de métier, s’est bâti cette maison à l’époque ou le village de Britannia devenait un lieu de villégiature recherché. La ligne irrégulière du toit, les pignons recouverts de bardeaux et la baie supérieure donnant sur un balcon heptagonal surmonté d’un toit conique d’inspiration néo-Queen Anne, style qui avait alors la faveur des constructeurs de chalet.
