I took this shot at night in July 2005 while Vincenzo and I were walking with my buddy, anthropologist Dr. Andrew Irving through the streets of Soho. After looking at the reflection in the left window, it reminded me of Joseph Stella’s Brooklyn Bridge. So I dropped it in for posterity. I originally posted this image on the Fading Ad Campaign Website as one of Three Nonsequiturs.
Yesterday I had the honor of meeting Priscilla Ege & Alice Lotosky from Bayonne’s Peal Collection, LLC (business card below)-
We talked about the importance of historic preservation of signs & buildings to a community’s identity & tourism- which has a positive impact on commerce. My friend Dr. Andrew Irving, an Anthropology Professor who is visiting from London, was also present.

The back of William Penn’s grave and the holly were taken in Old Jordans. The images of Dr. Irving and myself were taken on the campus of the University of London in the same week in March 2001.
Thanks Dr. Andrew Irving!
After nearly 100 years of Quaker ownership, the Old Jordans hotel and conference centre has been put on the market.
The sale package also includes the stable block, which was recently converted into a modern refectory, and the beautiful and historic Mayflower barn, reputedly built from the timbers of the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to the New World. The whole complex is expected to sell for around £2.5 million.
The property has been a part of Quaker life since as early as 1659 when William Russell, the owner of the land and a local farmer, held the first Quaker Meetings in the area. Also present at many of these early Meetings were George Fox, James Nayler and William Penn. The buildings passed out of Quaker ownership in 1738 but were reacquired in 1910 in a derelict state and converted into the guest house as we know it today.
