'The Braes' Fireplace

The dining room fireplace in 'The Braes', the Herbert L. Pratt estate designed by James Brite c. 1912 in Glen Cove. The home is now the Webb Institute for Naval Architecture and continues to use the room for dining. Click HERE for more on 'The Braes'.

Ahh, can't you just smell the Sterno? Still, it's wonderful that this magnificent home and its interiors have been preserved.
