Pewabic Pottery

"Automobiles were superceding carriages. Many stables were being vacated. Back of a well-known residence in an entirely desirable neighborhood on Alfred Street was an empty barn - just the place to start a small Pottery. I walked by it and around it before I had the courage to ring the bell of the Alanson Fox residence, and was ushered into the famous library where I found Mr. Fox."

--Mary Chase Perry, Excerpt from her autobiography-Chapter VII
