"Painted Lady" indeed - in Bowling Green, Ohio (where I went to grad school, postdoc'd, and taught, and where Joe taught in the Geology department) there is a similar-looking house also called the "Painted Lady". It is located in a block close to the Court House, and it dates back to the days when there were several houses for, shall we say, "gentlemen's entertainment" (read: brothels) in that location. The clientele in these houses were the Court House employees, recently released prisoners from the adjacent jail, and men who were freed after being found "not guilty" in the Courts.


any victorian house that is painted multiple colors is called a "painted lady", i believe.
