Just as its furry little ilk seems to have dominion over smaller yards and gardens, a giant rabbit ruled last week’s Where Have I Seen This?
As a whopping 31 readers recognized, the big topiary rabbit shown was from the ornamental gate at the estate known as Sheep’s Run, on Rumson Road in Rumson.
We noticed, while seated on a bench across Broad Street in Red Bank from Yestercades one recent evening, that the sunlight on the red brick building on the east side of the street home to a Merrill Lynch office is reflected in great detail in the Yestercades window, and that a painting of a woman’s head on that window appears to float over the reflection.
No, we weren’t hallucinating. Click on the original photo above right to see for yourself.
Twenty-five of the 27 readers who wrote in to identify the four pastel-colored Adirondack chairs shown in last week’s photo got it right.
The mistaken pair might want to take a seat in what several others refer to as the Four Chairs of Wisdom which according to Jim Fitzmaurice, replaced the Bench of Knowledge outside Butler’s Deli in Rumson.
It is there during early morning sessions, that “the problems of the world are discussed and resolved,” Jim writes. “Weather permitting.”
A second clue to last week’s Where Have I Seen This? didn’t keep some fans of this feature from going a bit astray.
One guessed it was taken at Prown’s Home Improvement on Monmouth Street. Another suggested “Page Photo Service (Matthew Page) located at 113 West Front Street, Red Bank” and added: “They had purchased the entire facilities of the Camera Shop formerly located in Carlton Theater building,” which is of course now the Count Basie Theatre.
One reader thought last week’s Where Have I Seen This?, which showed a lighted path and archway, was taken at the Soul Kitchen on Monmouth Street in Red Bank. Another guessed the Brave New World sportswear store in Little Silver. A third went with the Dublin House in Red Bank.
So three out of four who wrote in were off-course.
