LORD and BURNHAM greenhouse

this Lord & Burham built greenhouse is part of my studio space at Dufferin Gardens Studios
in St. Catharines.
I own a piece of history according to this piece....

Glass Garden Builders > Lord & Burnham historyThe 126 Year Lord & Burnham Legacy:1856-1982For more than a century and a quarter, Lord & Burnham was the premier greenhouse designer and builder throughout the United States and Canada.Lord & Burnham got its start in 1856 in Massachusetts, when Frederick Lord - a carpenter with a talent for building greenhouses - founded Lord's Horticultural Manufacturing Co.Lord then set up shop on the banks of the Hudson River in Irvington, New York - a site which remained a Lord & Burnham production facility - and its headquarters -- for the next 126 years.The Burnham in Lord & Burnham is William Addison Burnham, Lord's son-in-law, with whom he formed a partnership to build greenhouses throughout North America.At its height, Lord & Burnham operated production facilities in Irvington, New York, Des Moines, Iowa and St. Catharines, Ontario. Burnham Corporation, a maker of industrial boilers, discontinued Lord & Burnham - then its greenhouse division -- in 1982, one year after its 125th anniversary.If you own a Lord & Burnham greenhouse, you own a piece of history.

RENEWable, ECO conscious style.
AM always amazed at 2nd hand stores with the impression of an obvious consumer society with
so much wealth or credit that these stores are brimming with discards, unwanted, orphaned things,
and i imagine and improvise and add FLOURISH to things to breathe new life into them.
Restore their desirability.
