    Look at the suits and how lovely the farm was. I wonder why they got married there. Isn’t that near Manfield, Ohio? I remember a friend from Mansfield talking about this wedding and Bromfield and all. Happy Thanksgiving, Vickie!

      It was the home of the author Louis Bromfield, a great friend of Mr. Bogart’s. Happy Thanksgiving, Luanne!

      It is technically in Lucas, which is outside of Mansfield. I am originally from the area, and my family lives about five minutes from Malabar Farm, which is now a state park. I spent some magical times there when I was very small. It is lovely! Bogie was close friends with Louis Bromfield.

        No. *pouting* I actually thought early “Gee, I love wearing my old cashmere sweaters. Maybe I should move somewhere where it is cold all the time.” I did! I know….

        Here,sweaters are trotted out for about three weeks every year then washed carefully and SEALED in plastic bags so the moths don’t eat them!

    These are some of my favourite photos–though I find photos of these two especially charming at all times.

    What a wonderful photo—and oddly, I’ve not heard of Malabar Farm. It’s only about two hours from where we presently live, so perhaps next year (when it’s warm) I’ll have to take a photo trip!

    I have been there and took the house tour, it is a very nice house and you can imagine the wedding , and how special it was that they did it there.

      I know Louis Bromfield wrote a collection of essays called Malabar Farms, but what I really want to read is his 1927 novel, Early Autumn… Have you read it?
