(Part 12) 1935 Trip to New York Scrapbook

Hello all!  Today we see some nice postcards and some more words from our author....

I figured I would show some blowups of the postcards since they are really nice....

The next clipping is a single, large picture on a page.  It's kind of amusing because Mrs. O'Brien illustrates where she sat for us.

Our last event for today tells us of Mrs. O'Brien's visit to the Julliard Auditorium for a 4:00p.m. symposium.

Journaling:

From St. Thomas' Chapel (**it was a 2:15p.m. Recital) we were carried by bus to the Julliard Auditorium and heard Hebrew, Byzantine, Gregorian and Russian music.  The Russian music was grand.  A jewish mixed choir sang Sacred Hebrew music.  Young girls, 14, 15 & 16 yrs. old sang some chants.  Organ Postlude was given by E. Power Biggs.  We left after this program, came back to the Astor Hotel and rested, dressed, ate dinner at the Automat and then went to Radio City to hear the broadcast.

I can just imagine the great sounds that came from the interior of the St. Thomas Church.  Notice the beautiful collection of statues at the front wall of the church.   See you tomorrow!

Wow, E. Power Biggs! The postcards are wonderful - thanks for showing them close up. I find myself envious of her trip, even the little things like eating at the Automat.

I'm glad you like them. I think you were right about her probably being a collector. She's got an eye for good ones. And as far as being jealous of her trip -- you haven't seen the half of it yet. She definitely made the most of her trip. You'll see as the days progress!
