There was no reminiscence of the usual Southern porticoed gable or columned veranda.
The door of the cottage, porticoed with trellis-work, was in the center of the cottage itself.
There was a porticoed gallery on the top of a house some way off; it had a few plants growing in pipkins, and a drying line.
A winding path, lined with laurel bushes, led to the arched and porticoed entrance.
And now and then you see a pillared and porticoed great manor-house, embowered in trees.
A short two miles along this road brings us to the porticoed front and white domes of the University Observatory, erected in 1822.
