The Legion of Honor was completed in 1924, as a three-quarter-scale version of a Parisan building of the same name. The Palais de la Legion d'Honneurone is one of the distinguished 18th-centruy landmarks on the left bank of the Seine. In a statement delivered to the Board of Park Commissioners on 5 January 1920, Adolph B. Spreckels, who gifted the building to San Francisco, declared it was the purpose of “my wife and myself to contribute to the beautification of our native city something not only beautiful in itself, but also something devoted to patriotic and useful ends: something which might be dedicated as a suitable memorial to our brave boys who gave their lives to their country in the Great War, and also lend itself, as a home of art and historical treasures, to promoting the education and culture of our citizens, and especially the rising and coming generations."
For our trip to the museum I decided to wear my 1970's cardigan that I got at the last Golden Collective Sale from Rachel of Mousevox Vintage. It just so happens that I recently thrifted these 1970's inspired jeans on my last visit to the Salvation Army. My owl bag is an old favorite, and the necklace is a gift that is fast becoming a new favorite. Do you have a current closet favorite?
