Edward Julius Berwind, prosperous coal company magnate from Philadelphia and New York, was a fan of technology. His "summer cottage", The Elms, completed in 1901, sported the latest in electric lights and appliances when everyone else was still just cooking with gas. He was the first to have an ice-maker installed in his house. As a German immigrant to America, he, no doubt, would have been a Porsche fan had they yet existed. Edward was early to change his stables at the Elms over to an extremely large garage, stocked with "luxury cars". When his sister, Julia, took over the house, she is said to have insisted on driving the cars around Newport herself, something that was not done at the time. She clearly was in love with the act of driving. It is then fitting that Edward's back lawn should be filled with a cadre of amazing vehicles at least once per summer. Julia would surely approve!

The next event in this series is Saturday August 5th at Chateau-Sur-Mer. We have "Porsches On The Cape" that same day. And don't miss our Italian food and wine pairing in Wellesley MA the following day, Sunday August 6th!
