Travel Theme: Books

The Pierpont Morgan Library, is breathtaking- it was built between 1902 and 1906 and just recently updated with lighting that showcases the beauty of the room. The walls, reaching to a height of thirty feet, are lined floor to ceiling with triple tiers of bookcases fashioned of bronze and inlaid walnut. Two staircases, concealed behind bookcases at the corners of the room, provide access to the balconies above.

  1. Indeed a spectacular building and collection. Pierpont led a very interesting life. He was a very major player during the Industrial Revolution that swept America after the Civil War up to the end of the 19th Century.
