HP etceteras

The Knipe house gets a roof.  Here's a recent article about it at Vanishing Phoenix, a great but ultimately totally depressing historic preservation blog.

I noticed this 1914 architectural watercolor of the Monroe School hanging askew in the Kenilworth School basement during my tour of their archive last year.  No one at Kenilworth seemed to know or care what it was, so after a few months of emails, I was able to pick it up to take over to Monroe.  I don't really think they care either.  DAMN IT.  Doesn't anyone ever care about anything important?  Anyway, it will be home, at least.  I just hope they re-frame it.  This photo also features me and my favorite show, Rehab Addict.
