Today, Sept. 21

Today, amid the usual bloody detritus of human history, a small brightness. In 1937, The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien, was first published in England.

Dust cover, designed by Tolkien, for the first edition.


Some Attic Windows

I haven't posted any attic windows for a while, so ....

 Front and back views of a Swiss chalet inspired house.

And just across the street. The "Swiss" house was built for an executive at Studebaker. No info on the other house, a conventional late Victorian., with a really nice carriage house in the back.
