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.

It’s the only red house gallery in the world. Okay, in the United States. Oh my god, all right, in Connecticut. Anyway, it’s private and by appointment and filled with wonder and dustfree and no, you can’t bring your dog, and yes, you can buy things. In fact, that’s the point. If you go to the website now, you can see the sort of things you can buy, and the amazing thing is you don’t even have to come all the way to TORPEDO HOUSE to make a purchase. You can do it from your sofa. Not online, though. You can communicate with us through the website and we will do it all the old-fashioned way. By email. Or the prehistoric way. Telephone. Anyway, you know what they say about torpedos.

So flagpole sitting was a big fad in the US in the ’20’s. This kid was photographed in 1929 right at the end of all that fun. Doesn’t he look like he’s having a good time? I suppose there are stupider things to do. Let’s all think really hard and come up with a few. Well done, everyone. Now think of some stupid things that have nothing to do with Trump. Or go click the boy and find out more about this astounding photo.

There’s no business like the pink flamingo business, especially at the Moss Bureau enhanced shop at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. These babies get a lot of attention. No surprise, really. Just the thing to be riding around your pool on these hot hot summer days. Giddy up, Divine! Eat your heart out, John Waters.
