3 from the pool and one from the Garage





Edson and Eleanor Ford House: The gargoyles were the lights of the
woodland pool. The third picture is inside the pool house. The
fourth picture was in the garage. The caption (one of the few I had
time to read) said that Edsel Ford hoped that mass production would
allow every home to afford to have lovely objects that before, only
the rich could afford.

The rich really are different than you or I!

That gargoyle looks just like Bernie Madoff!

Nice shooting, Mary!

Their pool house is about nice enough to LIVE in!

They were big patrons of the arts, and it shows. :)

Taste has something to do with it, and I like what they chose! Oh yes, I could probably enjoy living there. Thanks for the peek at the other 1% (or whatever it is :)

They were very big patrons of the arts--HUGE!

My husband is a small patron of the arts--he patronizes me.

Hi Mary,

The gargoyles are awesome!
Maybe Bernie Madoff - but I also see the wizard from Disney's Alladin. I love the last object as well. The colours are beautiful!

Thanks for sharing this with us Mary.

Best regards
Asta

Thanks, Asta! I don't know if that's a bowl or a vase. But the colors are pretty, aren't they!
