I said that last week’s Photo Challenge was hidden in plain sight. Many Westporters pass it every day, without ever really seeing it.
So no, it was not the “Golden Shadows” mansion at Baron’s South.
The intricate design photographed by Mark Jacobs is part of old Bell Telephone brick building on Myrtle Avenue. When you turn on Myrtle from the Post Road, it’s the 2nd property on your right — directly opposite Sherwood Square.
The building was once a key operations center for the phone company. Now it’s just part of the scenery. (Click here for the photo.)
It’s still a good-looking building. Check it out the next time you’re stopped in traffic there — which I’m sure will be soon.
Robert Mitchell was the first “06880” reader to “call up” the correct answer. Bob Grant, Darcy Sledge and Mary Ann Batsell followed.
Mark Jacobs also contributes this week’s Photo Challenge. If you know where you’d see this beautiful scene, click “Comments” below. (Bonus points if you know the name of the waterway.)
