Here are pictures of some of the items at the Frances Langford auction.
Most items came from Frances' party "hut" on her private property, but some they weren't sure if they came from the hut or from the Outrigger restaurant. Obviously, the signs come from the restaurant, but from what year? Dunno.
Here is a rendering of "the hut":
We were told the party hut was designed by the same architect who designed the Outrigger restaurant.
We would not have known about this auction at all if it had not been for Benzart who told us at Waitiki before Flounder's art show last month. So, thanks Ben!
There's more to this story... One of the Outrigger signs was marked "sold to the Elliot Museum". Turns out this museum has a permanent Langford exhibit. So, a quick drive over there and we found some nice treasures, as well as a bit of surprising news for the future. I'll post all of that over in the Outrigger thread.
