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.

 

R.I.P. Dan Ingram

My all time favorite disc jockey who graced the airwaves on “Music Radio 77, WABC” during the 60’s and 70’s, Dan Ingram, has passed away at age 83.

I remember listening to his show, often called “The Ingram Travesty” all the time, His quick wit, style and production abilities have never been equaled. Radio has lost one of the great “top 40 boss jocks” of all time. He was my inspiration to attempt a career in radio and I’m truly saddened by his death.

May “The angels carry you home” and may you continue entertaining those listening to heavenly radio WGOD.
