Dear Peter this is a jewel!
seems like a still from a James Ivory movie.
too beautiful for words and the letterbox crop is perfect!
what is the story behind this?
movie set?

Hi Dado, thanks for the comments...
this photo was taken at Old Bethpage Restoration Village on Long Island New York. It's a living museum with turn of the century buildings and people dressed in period clothing. Not a movie set.

Absolutely stunning, Peter!!! The backdrop of the autumn trees is just perfect for the nostalgic mood the image evokes!! Don't they have a similar thing in Staten Island too? (historical replica, I mean)

I would love to, Peter. I actually went to the Bronx Zoo and Botanical Gardens yesterday, and it was so much fun, and perfect for this gorgoau weather! I just found the officail link to the Staten Island equivalent (where I've never been either): http://www.historicrichmondtown.org/

Potrebbe essere il fotogramma di un film ambientato nei primi del '900.
Davvero molto bella.
