One of the main focal points on the central Green in Morristown, New Jersey is the life-sized sculptural grouping of General Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and the Marquis de Lafayette, known as “The Alliance.” It commemorates Lafayette’s arrival with news of French support for the American cause. Washington used Jacob Arnold’s Tavern adjacent to the Green as his headquarters during the winter of 1777. During this winter Washington ordered the inoculation of his soldiers, saving thousands and preserving his army.
First thing that came to mind for ‘lift’ was elevator… this beautiful sort of art deco elevator is in the train station in Madison, NJ.
Before I knew it I was adding other lift pictures. Like…
Morning lift to start the day…
This large, beautiful flag certainly needs help being lifted…
Need a lift? This is one classy way to go.
And finally, on one of the hottest days of the summer think ahead to this kind of lifting 🙂
In Hamburg, New Jersey there is a gingerbread castle.The Gingerbread Castle sits silently at the end of a driveway surrounded not by a moat but by barbed wire fencing and ‘do not trespass’ signs.Once upon a time, back in the late 1920’s, the Gingerbread Castle was the centerpiece of an amusement park built next to the Wheatsworth Mill. The Gingerbread Castle was in continuous operation until 1978… it reopened briefly in the ’80’s and then closed for good in 1989.Fairy tale characters used to abound here… now, sitting alone on his wall only Humpty Dumpty remains.
The Gingerbread Castle is slowly fading away…eventually only memories will remain.Sadly there is no happy ending … just, the end.

What a wide open field (no pun intended). I went through many pictures of fields and then I came upon this one and knew it had to be my post.
