Ipsy Wipsy Institute, 110 Portland Road, Highlands, N.J. (Photo courtesy Vincent Mendes.)

After Fletcher Pratt’s death, his wife, Inga, sold the house and moved away, but returned once to take this photograph. Actually it shows the back of the mansion, looking downhill from Portland Road. The other side had the main entrance and the most frequently used stretch of the great porch, with its view of the river, the sandspit on the other side and, beyond that, the wide Atlantic Ocean.
