hello Bub[edit]

How's the library business? You'll see that I flicked a crumb off the surface of that Châteauesque article, which you seem to have adopted, in your legendary fashion. D is damn near halfway through law school and honing her skills on "Litigation: the Home Game", but still retains some reassuring gaps in her knowledge. It's growing colder at night and Portland around Homecoming looks like a Norman Rockwell autumn, achingly photogenic, if you can picture a Norman Rockwell autumn peopled by whippet-thin hepcats with sideburns, tattooed piercings and heavy black-frame glasses. Life is rich and strange. There are actually adult kickball leagues up here. Hope you're well, truly. --Lockley (talk) 08:03, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

History of fountains in the United States[edit]

It seems to me that the list of significant fountains would work better as a table. I, for one, want to be able to see an image of each and be able to compare them. If you agree, I'll start it. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 16:17, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm starting a table. If you really hate it, you can revert. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:14, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Sure. Decide if you like it. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:42, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
It looks like I just vandalized the page. Moving things into the table uses a lot fewer bytes. Feel free to fill in as you wish. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 21:32, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
I guess you can do right or left, or stack them. I had a lot of fun with the table on the Oval Office. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 21:44, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. You're very kind. I'd rather work toward making something better than stew in frustration over it. And it's satisfying. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 21:56, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Philadelphia has a Total Abstinence Fountain left over from the Centennial that's about 50 feet in diameter with lots of sculpture. I created a "Category:Drinking fountains" to put these Temperance fountains. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 23:39, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm a couple hours ahead of you (and yes, I do get obsessed). Odd that I can't find a PD image of the Thatcher Fountain. Maybe HABS or SIRIS. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:29, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm going to back off for now, so we don't get into more edit conflicts. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:43, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't know whether it's good art or not, but I'm particularly fond of this work by Stirling Calder: [1] Freshman year in college, I lived about 100 feet away, and walked by it every day. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 23:15, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
I agree on dropping "History" from the title of the article. It can be a subject heading. I added the Calder to the Drinking fountains in the United States, along with links to images of works still under copyright. I should start an article on the Centre Square Waterworks; technologically, it's important, and there are nice images. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 12:47, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Unexpected situation in New Orleans. There are TWO Hyams Memorial Fountains in the city, seemingly identical, both with the same Isidore Konti sculptures, but located in different parks:[2] Who wudda thunk? == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 02:33, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Hey, I care. And I'm glad you started them. (Although it's taken time for me to really appreciate them.)
SIRIS only lists one Hyams fountain, which is why it surprised me. I don't know if it was the donor's directive or a cost-saving measure (duplicate statues are cheaper?), but it does seem odd to have identical fountains in the same city only miles apart.
Sorry about the plumbing problems. Nothing funny about that. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 02:16, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't have access to JSTOR, but I've noticed some of their articles are now free (all, not just the 1st page). == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 18:09, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

'Head of the Nymph' (from 'Allegory of the Schuylkill River') by William Rush.JPG
I deleted a sentence you added to the fountains article. The William Rush sculptures Allegorical Figure of the Schuylkill River and Allegorical Figure of the Waterworks are both from 1825. They were never part of the Centre Square Waterworks (1801). Philadelphia outgrew the capacity of the single water tower by the 1810s, and built a reservoir on a hill called "Fairmount," now the site of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Fairmount Waterworks was built along the Schuylkill River to pump water up to the reservoir. The two later sculptures were architectural pieces, installed atop two small pavilions.[3] To my knowledge they never adorned fountains. Best, == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 19:01, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Congratulations on the bookcases. One can never have too many. Regarding Rush's Water Nymph and Bittern (a bittern is a water bird common on the Schuylkill), a bronze casting was made of the wooden statue, I think in the early 1870s. The bronze casting became the centerpiece of a fountain at the Fairmount Waterworks. Thomas Eakins found the original wooden statue rotting away in storage, and became obsessed with it, leading to his 4 William Rush paintings. The head of the wooden statue survives at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 03:21, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
I have a good friend who's an Eakins scholar, and she argues that Rush probably did not use a nude model. Eakins either assumed/imagined that Rush had, or co-opted the Rush legend to promote what he had been taught in Paris -- the necessity of working from the nude. The most interesting artifact of Eakins's obsession with Rush is the unfinished painting in Honolulu, where Eakins seems to paint himself as Rush.[4] == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 16:37, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
Granted, it's MUCH more fun. My username came from my niece and nephews, after I gave a detailed critique of an obscure American history YouTube video. I prefer to think that they intended that the history was boring, rather than the guy. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 19:44, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

We have talked about it, more than 2 years ago. I know it's not why you brought it up, but I intended to visit the PMA library to see if they have a full list of the sculptors. (Which I expect they do.) My Eakins scholar works at PMA (and is a delightful luncheon companion). She's urged me to come down, but I haven't been there in about 3 years. High time to go. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 02:00, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

I did some research in the library about 10 years ago, the librarian, Susan Anderson (another Scandanavian?), was very helpful. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 23:16, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Glad you like where Collegiate Gothic is going. Feel free to dip in. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 21:03, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
No, you're not wrong. As someone who lived in the Quad at Penn for a year, I've come to feel that Collegiate Gothic is as much an ethos as a style. When I visited Yale for the first time in the 1970s, my reaction to the college houses was strongly negative -- Collegiate Gothic on steroids, showy, disingenuous, devoid of meaning. I don't get that vibe from Cope & Stewardson's buildings. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 16:13, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
So, not a big James Gamble Rogers fan? Carptrash (talk) 20:23, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Well, at that point I doubt that I'd heard of him. I was familiar with local Gothic fantasies -- Bryn Athyn Cathedral, the abandoned-before-it-was-10%-done Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, Bryn Mawr College's Goodhart Hall,[5] -- but Yale seemed to take things to whole different level. I've read excerpts from the 1931 critique in The Nation, "Yale's Cathedral Orgy," but haven't been able to find the whole thing except behind a paywall. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 21:23, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
I added a Hybrid section to the article, but it's only a start. In an extensive quote in the Talk section, Autocorrect changed "spacial poetry" to "special poetry." Isn't that spacial? == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:50, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Autocorrect just did it again here! == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:52, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

I think you'll enjoy reading some of the comments to the article in The Atlantic.[6] Several commenters appear to be academics, and some share my opinion of Yale: "On the one hand I like the neo-gothic look, depending on the specific building of course, on the other hand you do get the sense that a campus like Yale is a "Hollywood version of Oxbridge," as I've always said to myself strolling around campuses at my many conference sites." Ignoring the conservative trolls, the biggest gripe seemed to be the author's attempt to directly link Collegiate Gothic to racism. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 12:27, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

The road trip for mural images was successful. Not as extensive as we had planned, but still a great opportunity to visit "small town America". We planned to do 20, but got to about 8 (I think).

Moderne[edit]

Follow the Moderne architecture link that you gave me, and you'll see my answer :-) In short, it's a partial name for the Streamline Moderne style. User:Doncram, obsessed about creating things with names exactly as the National Register of Historic Places named them, created a "Moderne architecture" tree that was distinct from the "Streamline Moderne architecture" tree, even though the two are simply slightly-different names for the same topic. See the final section of Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2013 March 21 for another situation of this sort, due to the same predilection by the same editor. So...basically, "Moderne architecture" was only applied to US locations, since the National Register doesn't worry about non-US locations, and buildings of this style will go into Category:Streamline Moderne architecture and its subcategories.

Not sure how to write the above without sounding brusque, but I'm not trying to sound that way, so please don't think I'm annoyed! Nyttend (talk) 05:01, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Drip, drip, drip ...[edit]

Thanks, but isn't it more like: "Only the most obsessive wikipedia editor can win one of these"?

BTW, do you have your Walker Hancock book handy? I'd like to add the Pennsylvania Railroad World War II Memorial (Philadelphia, naturally!) to the list, but I can't find the height of the sculpture vs. the pedestal, only the overall height: 39 or 39.5 ft. And there's no listing in SIRIS. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 20:07, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the sleuthing, I appreciate it. But I suspect they're still imprecise. Somewhere in the back of my mind is the memory that the memorial's black-marble base is 11 ft. tall, which would make the statue 27 or 27.5 ft. If the SIRIS listing of 37 in. represents a 1/9-scale model, the full statue would be 27 ft. 9 in., which sounds about right. The dimensions of the plaster model at MFA Boston are no help because it includes a (squatter) base. I'll just have to plug away some more.

Question[edit]

I started an article on Nicola D'Ascenzo because he was a significant artist, and I was frustrated in finding info on him. But Lisa Weilbacker's masters thesis provides a plethora of info. Do you think (as I'm now beginning to) that I should change the name of the article to D'Ascenzo Studios? == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 14:12, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

I think that I have a little book on him somewhere in my stained glass section. Where that section is since unpacking is an interesting question? I would leave the article under his name. Life is on the move right now, I have to go shopping then play 4 sets of music starting at 5, but . . . ...I did find the book, which turns out to be an exhibition catalog that you might already have. I'll take a look. Oh yes, well done. Carptrash (talk) 17:44, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, and thanks for your additions. I have nothing on him, just what I find online. I'm going to rest now, and go to the bank. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 18:22, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Any images would be welcome (especially ones of Cranbrook). Is his name pronounced "da-SKEN-zo"? == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 21:19, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Oh. I will look. Most of the churches involved (including Cranbrook) were visited by me due to their architectural sculpture so the windows were sort of a random set of shots with no real attempt at "East side, West side" sort of records kept. But I did find my mini light table, so at least looking at slides is possible. There is, somewhere around here, a book on Christ Church (Cranbrook) that might be useful. Harry Wright Goodhue did windows there too, for example. I will try and ask Mom about pronunciation since she lived in Rome for several years and learned some Italian. in fact she just got up, so, hang on, don't go away yet. Mom says a "soft" C, as in "center." So da scen zo. "sc" as in "scene" and the "en" as in "enter" = "zo." Make sense? Carptrash (talk) 00:32, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, yes it does make sense. "SC" at the beginning of a work is pronounced like "SK," but I suspected that it might be different in the middle. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 02:14, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

No, not really. There is a whole bunch of editors who do nothing but track down people who are posting stuff without proper permission and are will to lie about it. Also, don't forget to sign your messages with three of these ~. it is one of the ways that you become a real editor. Carptrash (talk) 18:01, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello C. I should have stopped by before to thank you for creating this. I have no idea where my manners went. The pic made me laugh out loud when I saw it last year so I asked WereSpielChequers to make it into a Christmas message which he did here. It has been a real hit and received lots of chuckles. I thought you should know how much fun your creation has given. Have a happy Christmas and a wonderful 2016. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 23:15, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

Newark housing project[edit]

NewarkRiot-Area.jpg

Do you have or can you recall any other info about this picture? It likely was in the Central Ward of Newark, but it would be nice to identify the name of the place or the street. Thanks much. Djflem (talk) 08:06, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

To tell you the truth (which is what we try do on wikipedia) I did not really know where I was at the time that I took the shot, other than in a very burned out part of Newark. I was there as part of an affordable housing tour and I remember the local person saying that this is where the Newark riot started. The high rises were interesting to me because they had no utilities, so were technically uninhabited, but it was easy to see that they were occupied to at least three or four stories. I suspect that they have been completely urban renewaled by now. I was shooting slides at the time, which are now complicated for me to look at, but I will try and check and see if there are any street signs. I did not shoot pictures they way we now do with digitals, and this is not really what we were there to see, it was just sort of a "by-the-way" stop.Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 19:20, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks very much. Sorry to hear that the slides were damaged. Will certainly make use of this or another of the set. At Seventeenth Avenue, they would have been the Homes so I hope you don't mind if I label them as such (And yes they were considered the ignition spot for the '67 riots) The article will focus on the "the projects", those massive urban renewal public housing Brick Citys before they were demolished for the wave of "new urbanism", which by the way if you haven;'t been for a while is changing the Newark landscape considerably.
