Julia Morgan Does Some Research

When Julia Morgan accepted the commission to design Hearst Castle, there were many cynics who questioned if "a girl was up for the task". Humpf! She certainly showed them, didn't she.

Before embarking on the actual design, she did extensive research, mostly in New York where she was less well known and could travel inconspicuously. Here we see her outside the New York Public Main Library where she did much of her research.

I'm tellin' yah, she looks like she is up for anything there. Way too cute, junk thief. I do like castles, old world Europe, etc. Pretty creative there. Have a great day.
