Well, here are a few pictures finally from the Philadelphia AGM – too many shots from far away, too many with not enough light, too many with too much movement – but I hope they will at least convey some of the fun had by all!
A few shots at Winterthur [I was amazed that you were allowed to take photographs! – but I bought the guidebook anyway…]]
The dining room at Winterthur
The winding stairwell at Winterthur
My buddy and great birder Sara in the Winterthur conservatory,
with an eagle…
A lovely harp at Winterthur [no Mary Crawford in sight!]
Martha Washington’s very own mirror
And now on to the first evening…
The lovely Elizabeth Garvie [a.k.a. Elizabeth Bennet] reading from Austen’s “The Three Sisters” [and way too far way…]
A runway full of Lisa Brown’s “Dressing Mr. Darcy” very accommodating models:
William Phillips of Chicago
Ray Skelly of Valley Forge, PA
’tis a lady, methinks! Karen Noske of Rochester NY
The pack of Regency gentlemen and soldiers…
The handsome fellows, William Phillips and Jeff Nigro
Some fashionistas and the Regency Ball Promenade ~
The always beautifully adorned Baronda Bradley in her day dress…
our very own Lorraine and William Hanaway
[though we have to share them with Pennsylvania…]
And lovely Baronda again, this year with her Regency Beau!
Two couples who come to our Vermont gatherings ~
kudos to them for the fabulous fashions!
The Promenade returning for the Ball
Capt. Michael Green, Lorna Green, and Nick Wells [as General Tilney! yikes! I disinvited him to the party!] – all from the London, Ontario Chapter
The Jane Austen Books family!
Greg holding Colin, Amy, Jennifer, Beth & Adam
and finally, the cutest Darcy of all…
Colin Frederick Patterson!
Thank you one and all for making this another
such memorable Jane Austen event!
