A South Fork Story


Photo Album

From left: A detail of the dining room in the Pink House, with the Murphys’ collection of blue-and-white china. A doorway in Swan Cove, with one of Gerald’s whimsical decorative touches still in place. Gerald framed this living-room window at Swan Cove in a mirror for Sara.   

From left: A detail of the garden at Swan Cove, which Gerald designed. A self-portrait of Sara Wiborg as a teenager. One of the few Murano-crystal champagne glasses that survived destruction at the hands of F. Scott Fitzgerald; during a drunken rant, he threw them in handfuls off the terrace of the Murphys’ Cap d’Antibes house.  

From left: The rope-framed mirror that Gerald made, in the Little Hut’s living room. Gerald’s personal shaker, in which he mixed “the juice of a few flowers” (fresh citrus juices, mint, sugar, and gin) to make the house cocktail. One of the family’s monogrammed trunks, topped by a rocking chair, from the trove of Murphy objects still packed in the Pink House’s garage.
