A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Whose House Lucky Thirteen

(In the comments: Happy Acres gets it right away. Happy wins an Intertunnel cookie. A very cool room, n’est-ce pas?)

  1. I’ll hazard: Mark Twain’s home.

    It looks awfully like the billiard parlor cum office I noticed in a recent documentary.

  2. I don’t believe it’s Twain’s. From the pictures I’ve found, it looks like Twain’s pool table was in a room with walls which were straight all the way to the ceiling, not sloped as these are.

  3. Twain’s and apparently, no photographs are allowed in the house. Sneaky peaky.

    Do you write near your pool table too?

    I own a green glass banker’s lamp like Twain’s.

  4. I’ve been upstairs, the third floor, Twain’s House on Farmington Avenue, and this room with the slanted pitch looks quite familiar. Everything in the building has been replaced, or is the original item, and it is a splendid place to see. Except there’s not a cat box to be found, considering that Twain had a dozen or more roaming around on any given day, I thought they would have placed a few here and there for the sake of authenticity. Or did cats use the bushes back in those days? Get over there before they shutter it up due to a pending bankrupt operations budget.

  5. Tom- If they close that place before I see it I’ll commit ritual suicide. That should be a national shrine, not just a down at the heels museum.
