"Her blonde hair was part of an attempt to to start over and adopt a new persona, following her first suicide attempt in August of 1953." Plath, who had spent six months in psychiatric care following the suicide attempt, had seemed to improve greatly by the the summer of 1954.

Erich Mendelsohn Einstein Tower, 1920
The Einstein Tower is an astrophysical observatory in the Albert Einstein Science Park in Potsdam, Germany built by Erich Mendelsohn. It was built on the summit of the Potsdam Telegraphenberg to house a solar telescope designed by the astronomer Erwin Finlay-Freundlich. The telescope supports experiments and observations to validate (or disprove) Albert Einstein’s relativity theory. The building was first conceived around 1917, built from 1919 to 1921 after a fund-raising drive, and became operational in 1924. Although Einstein never worked there, he supported the construction and operation of thetelescope. It is still a working solar observatory today as part of the Potsdam Astrophysical Institute.

Woo! I liked this episode a lot. The Lonely Blade backgrounds were so much fun to design. I did the top two and the couple shots of the temple, and the bottom one is a new version of an older one I designed. Steven and Emily do such a crazy good job with the house.
