(Part 14) 1935 Trip to New York Scrapbook

Today, we see Thursday's issue of the "A.G.O. Cipher" and some more color hand tinting by Mrs. O'Brien among other things....

"At this luncheon met Mrs. Crowe from Georgia, and two ladies from Nebraska.  We all sat at the same table."

"Took both of these trips.  They were very interesting.  The walls are very modernistic - brown and tan colors.  Some large paintings that looks like charcoal paintings covered the walls depicting the progression of man thru the Ages.  The lights are all indirect except in the ceiling and here and there, equally spaced so that they resemble stars.  Very beautiful.

Here are some clips from the scrapbook pages.  I thought the Rockefeller Tour Ticket was really cool.

"We went up about 59 stories and then out into the open where there was a beautiful flower garden, bronze statues and little fountains.  Beautiful pink & red geraniums.

And here is George & Lottie O'Brien, which I assume George is her brother-in-law.

Mrs. O'Brien's color hand tinting on this photo really pops!  She really highlighted those geraniums.  This is another one of her photos that appears to have been pinned somewhere to admire before she placed it into the scrapbook. 

Tomorrow, we will see some more pics of Mrs. O'Brien along with Dottie O. and some more journaling.  At this point in our journey, we are about 60% or so through the scrapbook.

That Rockefeller Center ticket is phenomenal. Good price for the tour too. Mrs. O'Brien's tinting skills are ever improving. I'll be sad to see this trip come to an end.
