Things I did not put in typewritten post: It actually took me some digging to find out what I know about 'the young lawyer', Simon Conner Moesley. Thanks to his rather thorough sister, there were solid leads on his grave marker, which led me to the archives of his alma mater, and in the end, I learned quite a lot about the man.
The 'magnate' is Frank Augustus Miller and more can be learned about his inn which is still in operation here.
The scientist is Hrista Stamenkovic who was an engineer who made great advancements in structural reinforcement in earthquake-plagued regions. His research is still the standard and available for purchase.
Being so close to All Hallows and Dia De Los Muertos, I hope this doesn't creep too many of you out.
Looks like a very interesting expedition. And an impromptu type-in is always delightful!ReplyDelete
After a dentist's visit this morning, I compensated by treating myself to a visit to an antique mall that was new to me. Several typewriters to see, but the only one that came home with me was a Remington Travel-Riter in crappy condition for $20. Good for parts, anyway!
"The day of the dead people" (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican celebration. It takes place on November 1st and 2nd. I know this because I am from Mexico. xDReplyDelete
Salutations & Greetings from this Oaxacan living in Morelia, Michoacan. xD
Hi Anna, so good to see your post!ReplyDelete
It is Fall in The Woods and we are gathering wood for the cold season, already upon us up here. Oak, cedar, fir and a bit of pine keep the home fires burning nicely. Best wishes for a lovely Fall season!
I'm still waiting for that letter...ha ha. ;-)
