Florence Griswold Museum: Old Lyme,CT

I have some of my grandmother’s fans. This one must have belonged to Miss Florence. A fan was a must accessory for all women back in the days before air-conditioning.early. It was fun to have out of town guests to whom I could show off this gem of a museum. The house seems now to be just waiting for all the guests to return from a day en plein air and one expects Miss Florence herself to come bustling through the kitchen doors at any moment. In fact, Anna Lathrop of Gourmet Galley is the one doing an excellent job of feeding guests at Cafe Flo on the veranda overlooking the Lieutenant River.
