Whimsical Windows - A Salute to the showman


Toby's architectural meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors is back, and with the world in such commotion, now a bit of whimsy is warranted :)

We visited the town of Bethel Connecticut and we knew a famous person who was born there, none other than the famous showman P.T. Barnum. We actually made the trek to the hilly Fairfield County burg of Bethel to meet a friend for lunch and as we were passing through, saw the statue of the impresario at the town's library. Windows of this 1800s building are part of this post but of greater importance is our daughter Allegra and her relationship to the bronze statue of P.T....Patti capturing her pose and selfie. So the windows are peripheral to the charming whimsy...

Ralph, that is whimsical on so many levels! P.T. Barnum, of all people! And in such a whimsical pose! And Allegra's to match! And I must say - I love her sandals :)
Thanks for posting - have a great week!
