Take a Word Challenge - ARCHITECTURE

This week at TAW the challenge theme is ARCHITECTURE. The photo is from an old family album.  I have extracted and used the photo of my Uncle Paul (by marriage) on many occasions.  The lady is my Aunt Julia. I hope we have come a long way since it was taken in a time when a woman had to know her place.  Here she stands while he smugly sits.
