Миллионер vs гробовщик


Миллионер vs гробовщик : размер 400x349, 76.17 kb

В 1870–х годах железнодорожный магнат из Сан–Франциско Чарльз Крокер решил скупить все дома вокруг своего особняка. Хотелось ему одного — улучшить вид на окружающие пейзажи. Договориться удалось со всеми соседями, кроме одного, немецкого гробовщика Николаса Юнга. Крокер не ожидал, что кто–то посмеет ему отказать. При номинальной стоимости дома в $3000, Юнгу предлагалась сумма $12 000, ответ был все тем же. Патриций и не думал сдаваться, было принято весьма оригинальное решение — с трех сторон вокруг коттеджа Юнга был построен 40–футовый забор(на КДПВ справа за особняком), это около 12 метров. Крокер был уверен, что после такого гениального хода дом продадут. Как писала позднее дочь Юнга: «Наш дом стал очень мрачным. Все цветы в саду умерли, наш газон стал коричневым, а внутри дома постоянная сырость.»
Гробовщик не сдался. По некоторым данным, он установил 10–футовый гроб возле стены, стоящей возле дома Крокера, и этот гроб не давал ему усомниться в своем решении. Юнг умер спустя несколько лет, в 1880 году. Крокер скончался в 1888 году, ему так и не удалось купить дом одного единственного соседа. Только спустя много лет, когда особняк перешел к другим владельцам, родственники Николаса Юнга продали этот злосчастный дом.
Эта фотография является первой из панорамы Сан–Франциско 1878 года.
