Souvenirs are for remembering.
It would seem that there are a bunch of people out there looking to remember the recently demolished Addison Mizner Main Line mansion La Ronda by acquiring a chunk of it. My blog stats are showing lots of search engine results for “pieces of La Ronda” and the like.
I’m wondering if folk are planning to incorporate the bits in an attempt to give architectural heft to a McMansion, or as garden statuary, or… what? If you are one of them, do please share what you have in mind.
Update: Rumor has it the salvage commission was given this place. But “search” reveals no obvious La Ronda sale stuff and poking through their website you being to understand the importance of “context” — was that the railing in the great hall? Was that one of those stained glass windows? Links elsewhere that directed to Mizner stuff at this place are all dead now. I was only able to follow up and find out where they went because I’m a good web researcher with a few tricks up my sleeve. Another source says it was this place (maybe you can see bits of La Ronda on their tv program!) but search there reveals nothing.
