This wooden building on the left, viewed from behind the auction house, is part of the original Owl Club. In the close-up picture of the Owl Club on the right, a stone terrace is visible. The wooden part was added later. This stone terrace surrounded a porch which served as a dancing floor. Placed on the stone terrace were stone planters holding moon plants. Here dancers waltzed the night away listening to live music. (Leon Carter, personal communication, 2000)
