Lyndhurst Mansion

A few weeks ago, my wife and I had the pleasure of visiting the annual Flower and Antique Show at Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, New York.

This show welcomes the spring season with a series of events and tours held at the mansion. To learn more, click on the link. http://lyndhurst.org/

I took some photographs during my visit and I hope you enjoy them.

Victorian Gaslight

While visiting Cape May, New Jersey, a town noted for its Victorian homes, I noticed that most of the street lights are restored, converted gas lit fixtures from the Victorian era.  I also observed that the side streets in the downtown area are still cobblestone and horse drawn carriages are used to take visitors on guided tours of the town.

A dark night lit by these lamps, combined with a cobblestone road, old Victorian homes  and the clip-clop sound of passing horse drawn carriages brings you back to a different time.
