Lattice House - Come and Explore

One of a pair of Italian candle sconces from 1960.
These are in excellent condition and have a terrific patina.
Everything in Lattice House is special and unique- but every once in a while something truly amazing comes in. This is a Lucite Owl from the late 1960's. He stands 12 inches tall and only has minor scratches. He would make a witty addition to anyone's home.
Simple, Clean, Modern
This is the best cocktail shaker for Sunday.
NAMASTE

Southport Harbor at the turn of the century.
Photo: date not certain but appears to be most likely circa 1890-1900 and not later than 1905.
Moored next to one of the last of Southport's Market Fleet, the schooner on the right appears to be the "George Edwin, " a market boat owned by the Simon Banks firm. The market boats ceased operation about 1903-4. The "Mary Elizabeth" was the last one sold in 1905 and taken to Long Island. Sasco Hill in the background.
Many thanks to Arthur Jennings Collection for sharing this rare photo.

Luin B. Switzer Drug Store on Harbor Road (at Main Street) in 1910

(click on image to enlarge)
Drug Store, Harbor Road circa 1910
Southport, Connecticut
Description "Quarto Chrome" postcard, #E5219, Published by L B Switzer, Southport, Conn. Made in Germany. See comments with photo #275. Printed on front of postcard "Harbor Road, Southport, Conn." The picture is thought to have been taken around 1910. On the left is the Luin B Switzer drugstore. Electric light had not yet been installed (done in 1913). There had been another store building to the west (right) of the drug store. It burned around 1903 and was taken down. These data have been used in establishing a tentative date. Beyond the drugstore is a park which belonged to the Perry family. Next, going west on Harbor Rd, is the BC&MMR (Bachelor's Comfort & Married Men's Relief) Club. The three white buildings beyond the club house are the Meeker onion warehouses which were at the foot of Westway Road.

#229 Coal Sheds, Harbor, Schooner Mary Elizabeth
Southport, Connecticut
Printed invitation postcard, b/w, C. H. Pease Publishers, Canaan. On the front of the card is printed: "You are invited to attend a sale of fancy bags and cake, to be held by the Sasquanaug Association for Village Improvement, on Mrs. Simon C. Sherwood's lawn [67 Westway Road], Wednesday, June 28, from 3 to 6 p.m. Ice cream and cake will be sold. If rainy, the sale will be the next clear day. Music." The legend "Southport Harbor" appears on the picture. On reverse of card, the post office cancellation is 23 June 1905. The picture shows the coal sheds which were located where the PYC docks and parking are now, opposite 608 Harbor Road. At the breakwater is a schooner identified by Charlotte Lacey in her Historical Story of Southport (page 45) as the "Mary Elizabeth." This ship was made into a schooner in 1884 (had been a sloop). She was taken out of market boat service about 1903 but remained at her berth at the breakwater. The ship was sold in April 1905 and taken to Long Island. The picture thus was taken between 1884 and 1905. Photo #229A is a print of the picture on the postcard. The original photograph has not yet been found.
