Errors & Frost

16 August 2010

A feeling of perverse satisfaction in the above.


Researching a small project have been finding some nice material on London’s Frost Fairs which took place in the 16-1800’s on the Thames. Fragmentary accounts describing stalls, attractions and general mayhem taking place (everything from Oxes roasting to elephants wandering about) “on the River now become a STAGE“.

Two stages I photographed yesterday at Alisomar Conference Centre in California, designed by architect Julia Morgan (1872-1957), best known as the architect of Hearst Castle further up the California coast in San Simeon.
