    The gaze of the will is impure and ardent. The soul of things, the beauty, only reveals itself to us when we do not covet anything. (H. Hesse).

    If someone look at my posts thinking about the value of what is presented and who can own it, it is not my post what he see, but only its relationship with his will, with his plans and concerns, with his pocket. Think that, perhaps, the problem is in your eyes and not in my post.

    This brings back memories of the time Ramon decided to publish one of my articles on his own site without my permission. I asked him to take it down, as it was a copyright violation; he responded that I couldn't touch him, because he was beyond the reach of US law enforcement authorities, and so I couldn't do anything to stop him.

    Ramon was mistaken. I pursued the matter, and Ramon was found to have committed an international copyright violation against me. The site at which he had illegally published my work was shut down.

    Good times.

    --Daniel
    That is remarkable. It seems that he still has no clue though about the concept plagiarism or copyright.

    #6 in the map. 1913. After testing the market by manufacturing and selling in 1912 from the back room of his jewelry shop #2, and now with the Sheaffer Fountain Pen Co. constituted, Sheaffer set up his first pen factory in the upper floors of B.B. Hesse Building (see footnote) in 2nd St. with Pine St. (today Avenue G with 7th St.).


    Footnotes:

    1869. Charles Conradt's Meat Market - city's first meat market.
    1877. Conradt Meat Market; 1879 - Bernard B. Hesse bought the building from Charles Conradt.
    1888. B.B. Hesse, clothier & tailor.
    1895. B.B. Hesse & Sons - merchant tailors and clothing.
    1919. B.B. Hesse & Sons Clothing Store.
    1949. B.B. Hesse & Sons Clothing Store.
    2006. Ivy Bake Shopp & Café.

    Height Three story, Walls: Brick.
    Storefront: Wood, screens.
    Windows: Arch windows with stone lintels and keystones, wood arch windows.
    Architectural details: Brackets.
    Modifications: Rear section added c.1910. The 1980s replaced first story windows to original arch style, replaced three doors with bronze steel. 1996 screened-in storefront and added wood doors.

    Pretty pictures, but they lack credibility insofar as Sheaffer company history. Someone just "fished the internet" for images, downloaded and altered them, and then uploaded them portrayed as scholarly research. But it's replete with misrepresentations, errors and plagiarism.

    Yep, just pretty pictures.

    Here's yet another in a long string of thefts by Ramon. All the Parker pen images in that post are actually someone else's. He's been stealing images and publishing them without attribution, implying that they are his own, for as long as I can remember. He's also engaged in deception by altering images to support his false claims.

    So I, an "unscrupulous tourist that neither privacy respects", took a photo "robbed to the owners of the house". Meanwhile, you, "Graduate in Arts", akin to Dali, Gauguin, Monet, Picasso, Warhol, etc have "respect and affection shown toward the past and present inhabitants".

    Plagiarism happens when a person presents any information as their own without credit to the original source. As we all know, proper procedure requires that the source of information or ideas must be identified and attributed to that source.
    Plagiarism can occur with the clear intent to deceive, with disregard for scholarly procedures, by ignorance, or laziness.

    Please do not obscure and obfuscate the clear and irrefutable point made here that you used two of my photographs without permission and without citing your source. You have plagiarized in the past and have been caught red-handed a few times. I hope you can learn from your misconduct and exercise intellectual humility and sincerity in the future.

    Ramon has a long history of plagiarism. The third paragraph in this post is plagiarized, for example.

    Eric, the owner/admin of the site, apparently still keeps very loose tabs on the place - to what manner and degree I can't guess. What I *do* know is that if you click on the "Report" icon to report a post for various infractions (which are shown in the next dialog box), you often will see action taken. And, frankly, I do it just on the hopes of that, not necessarily *expecting* something to happen.

    Oh, there's a rudder, it's just that there isn't always a hand on the tiller.

    In 1913 Walter Sheaffer sold his jewelry store #2 to Mr. Lerche, his watchmaker and witness of Sheaffer´s 1908 first patent, and W.L. Saunders, his brother-in-law to, who was previously his partner in Sheaffer Jewelry & Music Co., surrender completely to the manufacture of fountain pens.

    In 1924 Dana Bushong (more info click here) Sheaffer Autograph´s engraver, purchased Lerche and Saunders outright and opened under their name, and in another location in the same Avenue, with many of the WA Sheaffer assets including the old wall clock and this wall cases that we see here with drawer´s details and good photo quality (e.g. in the mirrors there is not photographer´s reflection).
