Stuart, Florida...Part III
Poof! Just like that, I finished the next corner......yeah...right:-) I just haven't been updating the blog as often as I should. In any case, the beautiful blond you see standing on the balcony is none other than Frances Langford, well known local movie star. Developer Mike Ryan thought it would be a good idea to have her on the mural somewhere since the building is directly across from the Lyric Theatre, built in 1925 as a silent movie house and currently used for all kinds of cool events. I missed an Outlaws concert there a few weeks back as well as a Firefall/Poco concert.
Back to Frances......see that bird? It's a peacock and apparently she was found of them or collected them...or both. The image is from a movie she starred in called "The Bamboo Blond" and if you look closely in the detail photo below, you'll see that she's connected to the peacock by my ever present red string. The photos of the last two windows on this side of the building show a silhouette of a lady sitting at her dressing table in the left window and in the right window we find Mackenzie's twin sister, also named Mackenzie. This Mackenzie is somewhat the tomboy, always wearing that baseball hat. That's probably her sister's shirt she's hanging out the window.
Next stop.....the South West corner and the funny fisherman.....stay tuned.
