Bonkers but Brilliant
Unsure why this tickled me but... tickle me it did.
Di's favourite building ever is The Chrysler Building.
What a looker...
Check out the video here...
Architects of important landmarks dressed as their designed buildings at Beaux- Arts Ball. They include Leonard Schultze as the Waldorf-Astoria, William Van Alen as the Chrysler Building, Ely Jacques Khan as the Squibb Building, Ralph Walker as the Wall Street Building, Arthur J.Arwine as a low pressure heating boiler, A. Stewart as the Fuller Building and Joseph Freelander as the Museum of the City of New York.
They all wore helmet like constructions of the building they had designed.
23 January 1931.
