I prefer the views of the 'almost' windowless side of Pauson than the more open side. It looks more fortress-like, impregnable.
Too bad the ruin was whittled down and moved; it looked so grand and sad sitting up on its hill alone.

Enjoyed seeing the long-distance photo which shows the concrete stairway to the second floor. I must have been up and down that stairway a dozen times. Wonder who "Melanie" was, too. Her name is forever immortalized on the terrace floor.

You have to wonder what the City of Phoenix might have done had Mr. & Mrs. Boomer rebuilt the Pauson House, as they once considered. Would the house have been bulldozed, then, too, or would 32nd Street been curved around the new house. Either choice would have been disastrous .... and, of course we wouldn't now have the Boomer House.

Found this unidentified and tiny image on Pinterest.

A novel view, in my experience . . .
