Here is a video that I put together on my Philco Radio House.
I built the house to display my collection of antique Arcade Cast Iron dollhouse furniture.
I had the opportunity to tour of the Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in Guthrie Oklahoma. The Classical Revival style building has themed rooms influenced by ancient societies, among them are the Assyrians, the Romans and ancient Egyptians that go along with the users philosophies. The building shows 100 year old craftmanship and talents of both American and European artisans.
