Behind Closed Doors | A Rare Peak into Hef’s Lavish Parties
(This series of photos were taken by blogger Muffy Aldrich’s father in 1968.)
The original Playboy Mansion was a 70-room classical French brick and limestone residence in Chicago at 1340 North State Parkway, which had been built in 1899 for Dr. George Swift Isham; it was acquired by Hefner in 1959. For a period in the 1970s, Hefner divided his time between the Chicago mansion and the Mansion West, moving full-time to the California mansion in 1974. The Chicago mansion boasted a brass plate on the door with the Latin inscription, Si Non Oscillas, Noli Tintinnare (“If you don’t swing, don’t ring”). - Via: 1 | 2
