Acclaimed Hamden landmark Torpedo House is proud to introduce an entirely new category of Important Architecture. Fairy Tale Architecture. We look at it as the marriage of Walk Disney and Alice Washburn, the architecture of Torpedo House itself. Free from allegiance to any existing architectural style or school, Washburn was able to draw from them all, and create her own signature style, one in which whimsy, fancy and childlike delight are the driving principles, where Garrison meets Medieval meets Colonial, on equal footing. In the next several weeks, we will be sharing more examples of this exciting historical (and historic) development

No, we are not at an Amazon Warehouse on Cyber Monday, my friends. We are back in time to 1954 and photographer Massimo Ascani shot this for United Press Photo and it’s called, for some reason, “A Part of Christmas”. You can find this and many other excellent examples of compelling and disturbing vintage press photographs just waiting for you at Torpedo.House. I’ll bet you know exactly who this shot would be perfect for. As a little going away gift.

There’s no place like MossAngeles for fine shelving. We brought everything back to New York and we have all the 606 Universal Shelving you could want: shelves, uprights, cabinets and even sloping shelves. Black, off white and silver. We have everything except the shoes. If you only had a brain, you’d call 212 204 7107 or email email@example.com for more info and find out how CHEAP they are. You’re not in Kansas any more and you’re not Judy Garland either, so get some shelves, girlfriend.

MOSSANGELES was all about 606 Universal Shelving. It was featured all over the Gallery but we could never find a single book to put on our many shelves. We said “Do you have books? ” They said, “huh?” So we brought all the shelving back to New York when we closed up out there. It’s been boxed up in our warehouse and just waiting for the right moment to be released out into the world. Which is now. Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 212 204 7107 for more info. Which will also be coming forth here, tomorrow. Support your books.
