Thursday, March 26, 1936

Plesant all day
Harry worked on the broken limbs in the yard and took Mother and I to Ithaca* this afternoon-
He bought us a quart of ice cream and we called on the Malones-
I made a square cake with chocolate icing and a black raspberry pie this A.M.
Mother has been pretty good-

Google map of the trip from Ludlowville to Ithaca- 2014

*One of my readers on Facebook wondered how long it would take them to get to Ithaca from Ludlowville. With modern roads & current traffic, it's about 9 miles to Ithaca & would take 15-20 minutes to get there. I'm unsure what the roads were like in 1936. I'll have to do some research. Unfortunately, the GIS maps on the Tompkins County website don't seem to have any historical map layers. The trips seem to be short, going in the afternoon, so I'm thinking under an hour one way.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
