My current obsession is the New York Social Diary. You can spend far too much time (or maybe I can) reading about the old-money families of the leisure class. Like Mrs. T. Charlton Henry photographed in 1965 by Diane Arbus. Not only does the site cover people, but huge estates including all the beautiful interiors. This picture is actually from a different, though similar, site. I think reading “That Woman” has perked my interest, though I’ve always been attracted to this sort of thing: mansions, antiques, the eccentric, and finer things of olden days.
