So, here is the challenge for you, tasteful readers. Suggest a color that the oriels and other woodwork should be painted.
The picture below shows Warsher Row as it appeared in 1905.
The tonal differences in the historic image suggest that the central oriel may have been painted a different, somewhat lighter color than the other two oriels and that the value of the color on the other two oriels was similar to that of the red brick. In 1905, all three oriels appear to have been painted fairly dark colors, not the cream color that they are now.
While you are submitting your suggestions for colors, you might also share your opinion on this question, although this time no one has asked for it: Should the balustrade on the central oriel, which appears in the 1905 photogtaph but is missing now, be re-created?
