(Part 11) 1935 Trip to New York Scrapbook

Today, we pick back up with Mrs. O'Brien's Tuesday and finally move into her Wednesday.  We will be seeing a really nice postcard and will look inside the 2nd issue of the A.G.O. Cipher that we've run across so far.

Journaling:

We were a few minutes late and the program had started when we arrived at "The Cathedral of St. John The Divine" and couldn't find seats so we had to sit around some of the marble posts.  About 100 small boys and about 25 men from different churches composed the choir.  The organ was a Skinner and it was beautiful.  The church is Episcopal and small chapels each containing pipe organs are all around the sides of the building.  The carvings and colorings were magnificent.  T. Tertius Noble was a the organ.

Journaling:

Wednesday - Ate breakfast at Childs.  It is right on the street in a little corner, with ferns and red and white blocked table clothes.  An ideal place for breakfast.  Afterward, I made a trip via subway to South Ferry but missed the boat and had to come back on the elevated train.

Tomorrow we will see three really nice postcards and read some more journaling.  See you then!

What a great Bowery postcard. She must have been a postcard collector prior to the trip.

GREAT card! I hope there's more of these in this album.
