They Don't Make Them Like This Any More...
Vince and I went over to the Nassau County Museum of Art to see a photographic exhibit that included some Ansel Adams original black & white prints. We wandered around and saw two other shows while there. We looked at a lot of photographs in the second floor galleries. On the way back downstairs, I noticed this amazing staircase! I can't imagine how they carved this curving and twisting handrail! This building was the former home of Childs Frick, who was the son of Henry Clay Frick, the founder of U.S Steel, so he had a few bucks to spend on building this place back in 1919.
