This is an image of Edward W. Bok's home, Valentino, located in Mountain Lake Estates near Lake Wales, Florida. Mr. Bok was the editor of Ladies' Home Journal and the founder of the Mountain Lake Sanctuary (now Bok Tower Gardens). Valentino was constructed between 1921 and 1922 and presented by Mr. Bok to his wife, Mary Louise Curtis Bok (later Zimbalist), as a gift on Valentine's Day. '3-12-27' appears on the left side of the negative. This negative is included in a set of three books which include Mr. Burrell's photographic documentation of the construction of the Singing Tower.
