(Part 15) 1935 Trip to New York Scrapbook

"The guide too up 69 more stories and we went out and goged at the skyline.  The wind was blowing, terribly as you can tell by the pictures below.  We were on top of the tallest Rockyfellow Bldg.  Which is 1/4 the tallest building in New York.

The gentleman is Mr. Kiser an organist at the Convention.  The guide explained - fully that the different buildings had their plans for the future."

"Came back to the Reception and Tea which was given in the Rainbow Room.  A pretty room done in green.  We had tea, four sandwiches, two pieces of candy shaped cookies.  Before we went to Tea - I went into a "Powder Room" and fixed up.  There were modernistic dressing tables with four different shades of Coty Powder and a bottle of Coty Perfume.  I helped myself to both.

While having tea in the Rainbow - a gentleman came up and was introduced as Mr. J. E. O'Brien from Pittsburge, an organist as he had on a badge.  I told him that was my name, but had to show him a traveler's check before I could convince him it was so.  He said he had an audition with "Major Bowles (Bowes) Amateur Hour" that afternoon at 2:30."

I hope you liked today's post.  Tomorrow, we here from Mrs. O'Brien about a lot of visiting the N.B.C. Studio and some insight into her visit to a recital/concert at St. Bartholomew's Church.
