What a history and sordid past
I love this shot.wv: herpo. When one of the Marx brothers came down with a questionable disease, they started calling him Herpo. He was not pleased.
Great shot, what an amazing history that place has. It will be a sad loss if they don't keep the place up.
What an interesting and chequered past it has.
I thought the name sounded familiar to me...I must have read it in connection with famous people/events in years past.Your very fine photo captures it's fading elegance very well. But what a fascinating story. I read the whole article, believe it or not. While I wouldn't want to live there, I think it would be fun to visit sometime...
A nice quip on Ocala DP. You were the first (and only, I think) to catch the socks or lack thereof.
You were famous, your heart was a legend...
Great shot of the charming building.
Cool. It immediately put me in mind of the Joni Mitchell song - Chelsea Morning.
