Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #65

March 21, 2013

At the beginning of this week, Chloe Richardson and I had the opportunity to spend two days with our contract Decorative Arts Curator, Ellen Denker. We spent our time looking at over 60 objects from the balcony and a couple porches.

It was fun trying to imagine and piece together the porches as they might have been (and what was off-view of the camera in photographs). The Lake Porch was especially interesting because of its various photographs which depict subsequent re-decorations even in its early years. 

As always, we can't wait to see what Ellen's further research will bring to light about objects we see every day.
