Monday, May 4, 1936

plesant all day- Cooler
Harry dug up burdocks and straightened stone walks and took up Aunty's board walk and raked it over ready to sow grass seed-
Harry and I took eggs to town and got groceries and cashed my check-
He treated me to ice cream and candy and creampuffs-
Mother nervous
I bought 2 pr of cotton hose-
Harry went home
Hay pressers today^
Business Directory, Ithaca, NY 1936

 *I found an Ithaca/ Tompkins County Business Directory for 1936 online. I haven't had a chance to read through it in all its 107 page glory, but I will. Maybe I can figure out some of the places they may have gone to, like the grocer, & ice cream shop.

^This was written sideways up the left hand margin of the page.

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