That is indeed deeply fabulous. The second picture makes me think the Nautilus could surface in that pool at any moment.

I have seen vintage photos of other parks in Detroit with similarly lavish landscaping. Sadly, sections of Bell Isle are all that remain of that grandeur.

I reckon we have just about enough room in our backyard to knock up one of those glasshouse-thingies just like the one in the picture...  Shocked How stunning is that!

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.
