The second picture from the top looks like something out of a shot from a opening sequence of a movie.
Meudon was one of those houses you had to see. I never saw it, but I have been to the ruins. It was built of a cream colored brick, which you can still see on the entrance posts.
I am not sure if it was one of the greatest houses, but I think it had a magnificent setting, and the with all the gardens, it must have been one of the most awe inspiring houses from the sound!
On the second aerial photo, the print appears to be inverted. Great shots! I was lucky enough to have the exterior of the house before, as well as during and after demolition. Larger than life!
Thank you, it is reversed. came form an old 35mm slide, I will have to fix it. The demolition pictures are dated 1959, unfortunately taken by someone with a shaky hand. The are really much worse than posted. photo shop helped clean them up.
also interesting how they boxed in the loggia to increase the size over time and did it asymmetrically. one of the greatest losses, i think as this one worked synergistically with the landscaping. very impressive.
security word def - "diside" - 1. over here or 2. to make up one's mind
I was married at Peacock Point in the early 1980s and later lived in "Lockjaw Ridge" behind St Johns Church,and next door at "Whispering Pines"
I now live back in the UK but love to see the photos.
