Mermaid Pool Staircase, Then and Now
Another "then and now" from Duke Farms. This one was difficult. The perspective shown in the circa 1907 postcard is almost from down in the gully - a shooting location that would not be appropriate, or even allowed, today. In scouting these scenes, it became apparent that many postcard photos were taken from spots that are inaccessible in 2015 - so let me assure readers, and Duke Farms, that I am sticking to the paths, and the mowed lawns with the picnic tables. I enjoy a challenge!
