Bless you Amyjo, for this rare link. Doris Day's insight was quite revealing. The homes of today are a mockery of talent, materials and the history of family shelters.
So much is shoddy today, yet commanding insane prices.
Many of the old LDS Ward houses from 1890 thru 1955 were each tailored by local tastes. The members built them, if skilled, and so, there was a unique flavor.
After pride crept into the church, the boiler-plate Brethren took the reigns and dictated the plain utilitarian gems of today.
No more stained glass, bells or local workmanship.
I'll be spending the evening in Wendover tonight. If you hear shouts and loud laughter, clapping and see a worried Pit Boss, say hi. I'll buy your free drink.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azUDCiYxj0k
