Francesco, thank you very much!
The country stores in Isle of Wight County have been methodically sought out and photographed by the great Isle of Wight photographer Carolyn Keen, whose works illustrated the second edition of Helen Haverty King's famous work Historic Isle of Wight: To accompany the pictorial, historical map "Isle of Wight, 1608-1865". (Donning, 2007) Ms. Keen's new work is virtually in print now, but I am not certain when it is to be issued to the public.
Thank you, Damien. Very fine indeed!
Don't put down that camera!
"Fallingwater or Kaufmann Residence is a house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, 43 miles southeast of Pittsburgh."---Wikipedia As you well know, r.w., there was no such thing as sex in the 1930s; we only discovered it in the 1960s, and even then we seemed to learn nothing about it. It is true there is little furniture to break, but people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw orgies. One need hardly point out that people wishing to throw orgies would probably have found it more handy to locate somewhat nearer a human population, as it seems likely that people are necessary to a successful orgy.
The other argument against your rumor (unless you were referring to Wright and his graduate students) is that there is no sex in Pennsylvania to this day--only good Friends. I think Ms. Grace will back me up on this.
Pittsburgh does have a fabulous Museum of Natural History, however; and the city itself was undoubtedly built so as to afford more ready access to Fallingwater.
Your search for sane people is as pathetic and will prove as vain as Diogenes' attempt to find an honest man in Athens. Let me save you some effort. Just purchase this place and build your better mousetrap.
I just clicked on the "Want to use bold, italic, links?" note below the box for comment, and as there instructed, put "Google" in square brackets, put the link in parentheses immediately after it, and BANG! A new link was born.
You are more experienced at hunting down antic stores than I, and my memory was faulty about my own picture--which I spent some time relocating, as I had forgot it was in Gloucester. But it also is a huge rectangular two-story structure with anti-termite brick half-pillars so common to the Coastal Plain of Virginia and Carolina, and I had thought the porch roof was higher as it seems high from ground level. Frogs is certainly more remarkable, as a commercial venture hardly needs a portico too high to guarantee shelter from rain at the same time as it is guaranteed to cost more to build and maintain. But the added drama is there and that may have been a strong motivator.
I'm glad you like this one--it was one of my own favorite locations!
Thank you Kaptn Iso.
