    My daughter had her Master's graduation at the University of Delaware this weekend. As part of our family weekend, we went to Winterthur which was a property owned by the duPont family. One of the owners collected A LOT of antiques and I snapped a few pics. If you happen to be in the Wilmington area, I highly recommend a visit...These were on the 7th floor and you have to sign up for a tour to access them...My apologies for the poor photography, I did not have much time at each as the guide insisted we all keep together...There were more up there that I did not get pics of than those that I did...

    For those interested, this post from last year contains a link to a NY Times article on Winterthur and a link to a December 1979 Bulletin article on the same. The bulletin article, of course, is available only to NAWCC members signed into the nawcc.org.
