Very sad indeed, that yet another American Gilded Age mansion was demolished in NYC. Location: 5th Avenue and 77th Street. The mansion was the residence of; Senator William A. Clark, father of reclusive heiress, Huguette Clark. Construction of the mansion took 13 years  (c.1895 - c.1908). Demolition took place, as pictured here, c.1925, the year Senator William Clark passed away. ~ {cwl} ~ (Image: NYPL)

What Lewis and Clark Ate...a very interesting article! They took nearly 7 tons of dried goods with them, including salt, coffee, a portable soup that was boiled until gelatinous, left to harden and then could be transported. Times have certainly changed!
