There are stretches where you would swear that the only thing holding up some of these buildings is the other buildings on either side of them. It must be hard to keep a balance between authenticity and structural integrity, but they seem to be doing it. The oldest buildings in Norfolk, such as they are, have been renovated to death, and seem more like curios under glass than buildings with a continuous record of habitation. It doesn't help that most of them are museums, or attorneys' offices.
