Love my new William Morris face mask from Gamble house gift shop!
Spring weather in Pasadena is perfect, with comfortable, warm temperatures. But the summer is quite hot! How did they go about cooling the Gamble House during the summer months?
Just curious if there any existing photographs of the interior of the house just before it was donated? I seem to recall hearing that a good portion of the hall furniture was stored in the attic towards the end of the Gamble families tenure in the house. It probably wasn't very flattering for I have images of ugly lazy boy type furniture with old TV's with rabbit ears. But it still be interesting to see what it was like.
