Lady Walker's Bedside Lamp
This image is for the two ladies who recently became followers of my blog. One is a retired school teacher in Deer Lake, Newfoundland, and calls her blog Gone to the Dogs. Also for Elaine Dale, another Newfoundland lady, who calls her blog A Scattering. Thank you both for following and helping make this little endeavor worthwhile. About a couple of months ago, I happened to take a visit to the Willistead Manor during the Art in the Park event here in Windsor, Ontario. It is a very elegant building, and was the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Chandler Walker. Edward Walker was the son of Hiram Walker who was known for his distillery operations. The home was built between 1904 and 1906, and though quite large, had only one bedroom. This lovely bedside lamp caught my eye, and I decided to grab a quick shot of it as I wandered about. I could have photographed in there for hours. Hope you like it also.
