Monday, April 13, 1936

Rainy and cloudy all morning but getting clear this afternoon so Mother and I went for a walk and called on Marie Barron in the gothic* house.
Mother has been restless all day.
I rec'd Easter card from Bertha George & family-

*Gothic architecture was typically created in stone, however in the late-19th century carpenters in the US adapted to style for timber houses. The steam-powered jig saw allowed for intricate "gingerbread" type designs to be cut out of wood & applied to houses.

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