This week I wrote a column about 'the allure of trains' and referenced the letters my grandfather's wrote to my grandmother from Sep 29, 1938 to Apr 23, 1939.
Here is the column: http://www.skyhidailynews.com/news/lodge-the-allure-of-trains/
But while I ran out of time to add more details to the story I wanted to include a little more here.
Here is a postcard I found online from the Sheridan Hotel in Minneapolis Minnesota. I'm guessing it no longer exists.
And a photo from the photo copied letter (my aunt has the original) from the letter:
Here is an story from the Houston Chronicle about the "historic" Rice Hotel, a hotel my grandfather stayed at in 1938.
Three great themes to create an interesting book.
I'm going to start back up and get this book written.
