The photos of the Fourth Street
house by Harry Taylor in WBM’s
August’s 2019’s issue were beautiful
and cooling to look at on a hot
summer day...thank you, and thank
you to Harry for your unique per-spective,
magic light, and sensitivity
when seeing this true gemlike addi-tion
to Wilmington’s fluidly chang-ing
downtown. This was truly a
cause to pause.
