KANSAS CITY BLOGGER MUST SEE!!! EPIC PHOTO NEWS FACT CHECK: WITNESS WHAT WAS ACTUALLY LOST IN HISTORIC NORTHEAST SCARRITT MANSION BLAZE!!!
One of the best photographers in Kansas City offers an important correction to the local news and bittersweet perspective on the real damage sustained in a recent fire to a beloved Northeast mansion.
Here's the word:
"The news gave the misleading impression that it was still under renovation and that virtually no furnishings were lost. NOTHING could be further from the truth. If you could post a link to my blog post, I would be eternally grateful. The homeowners have too much sweat equity, not to mention money, invested in this home to let that impression stand."

Hyperblogal: "This magnificent 1888 Brownstone built for William Chick Scarritt burned yesterday. A local television station broadcast interior pictures from before the current owners restored this masterpiece. With their permission I'm posting these pictures of what was ACTUALLY lost. This is a tribute to the work of Larry and Susan... at least we have these memories for now. Much of the work was done by the owners themselves. To show the interiors before any work took place with the implication that not much in terms of furnishing was lost, is awful . . ."
