~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ DH Lawrence mentioned in The New York Times: Delicate Chinese Albums for Wealthy Show-Offs
The Huntington Library in California has acquired a set of 17th-century Chinese albums
of wood blocks and poetry from the Ten Bamboo workshop.
Half way down the article on "Delicate Chinese Albums" is the reference
to the DH Lawrence Ranch in San Cristobal, NM - better known as the Kiowa Ranch.
Following are photos that were given to the Friends of DH Lawrence by Angelo Ravagli's
granddaughter Frederica Bonanno after her family visit to the Kiowa Ranch in April 2014.
Angelo and Frieda were together from 1930 until her death in 1956. They were married in 1950.
