Looking at St. James’ church from Thayer Park, I’ve never seen the church building in terms of geometry, but seeing this drawing of a church in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the similarities and the “regulating lines” jump out at me. With thanks to “The Principles of Pattern” in Jonathan Hale’s The Old Way of Seeing (1994).
What a treasure. Passing by on eBay, a 1930 Brown & Bigelow calendar from the National Bank & Trust Co. of Skaneateles illustrated with the aptly named and perfectly suited “Treasure Princess” by Edward Mason Eggleston (1882-1941). The artist studied under Harvey Dunn and was known for his pirate girls, Native American maidens and exotic Egyptian royals. Today’s banking incentives pale in comparison.
In 1949, the King Features Syndicate published a collection of Christmas carols, illustrated by the various comic strip artists who worked for them. This is the page by Frank Godwin, who summered at Fall Brook Point on Skaneateles Lake from 1928 until the early 1940s. My thanks to the Golden Age blog where you’ll find the complete collection.
