'Longfields', the William Payne Thompson Jr. estate designed by Carrere & Hastings c. 1910 in Old Westbury. The estate was inherited by Thompson's nephew William Payne Thompson Preston Sr. in the early 1930s and these photos are courtesy of his daughter, Elizabeth Preston Hutchings. The estate was sold to Ambrose Clark in the 1940s and the house was eventually demolished so Clark could incorporate the property into his adjacent estate 'Broad Hollow House'.
