Spring Hill Playhouse / Playground

The playhouse at Henry Carnegie Phipps' estate 'Spring Hill' in Old Westbury.  The structure collapsed in on itself a long time ago, but wouldn't have been used in decades anyway given the Phipps' children are long grown.  The playhouse had a fireplace and sink (that lays in the pile) which means it probably had running water (as most did).  

Next to the playhouse is this massive swing set, yet only has one swing still attached.  In the distance is a set of parallel bars, an apparatus not seen in children's playgrounds in a very, very long time.
