Santa Rosa Parks & Rec website tells us that the “stunning DeTurk Round Barn is among California’s oldest truly round buildings. Isaac DeTurk, one of the county’s first winery owners, built the barn in 1891 as a horse stable for his prize-winning stallion. A renovation in 2011 has brought this historic building into the current century.”
And to wrap up my presentation of this seasonal extravaganza, a video to show how the lights and trains in the photo at top left, and the tongue-and-lamppost installation, all work when in motion. Hope you’ve enjoyed this exploration of seasonal cheer / late-consumer-capitalist displays :-).
To close out this series, I’m highlighting a lovely neighborhood whose residents have chosen the low-tech, hand-painted approach on their lawns. And they certainly show a wide range of personal styles, eh? 🙂
