Re: Vintage Roof


I have hundreds of photos from this trip alone, but they are on my Nikon, and I only have my iPad with me, and no way to upload. I will try to grab a few here and there with my phone for you guys.

Still struggling to upload...

Yes those are ruins to the right. Saint Cirq.

I'm a gutter installer, not historian. But to answer your question the photo is apparently faked.

Dear Sir,

That photograph is known as "iconic". It is the world's most widely publicized photo of Valentino with his Isotta Fraschini Town Car.

What possible fkn reason would anybody have to fake some gutters?

Here is the page of the Valentino estate catalog, from whence the image came.

Old doesn't always mean perfect. No where else to post this and saw it today. We ate dinner with around 400+ other people for the Thursday night town dinner. Then walked around with a bottle of wine and toured the city.

I was interested that you would point that out. According to this, they were around quite a bit before the Wisconsin history article suggests. Perhaps the article mistakenly reports the portable roll formed gutter as the advent of the K style.

Versailles. The wife had never been, so we went today. Rained some on us, but that just helped cut the crowds down a little.

Opulent is the best single word to describe it.

The old thatch roofs are high maintenance.

Come on, Mr. Latone. It's on the internet. It has to be true!

Here's my original question:
"Are you sure or is the pic doctored? As NYG points out, there's a K style gutter on that house. Did they have those way back then?"

I was curious, not trying to be a smart ass. Then you come out with. "you're the expert".
So, what's you're fkn reason to jump on my ass about this? Save it, it's not really worth knowing.

It bothered you enough to reply. Don't pout now...

I just posted a picture. About a roof. You are the one who made the challenge - and it is YOU who has the nick "CrescentGutter".

So step up to the plate big boy.

Because I don't know chit about gutter history. I just liked the roof. You getting this?
