(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
Felt quite silly after supper. Alyce Claire sent a telegram to Royal and we decided, on the spur of the moment, to go to the show. Sat in the balcony to see Grace Moore in “Love Me Forever” Good performance by everyone. A.C. doped me on lemon juice and packed me in bed as precaution against a cold.
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
This is the Manhattan skyline.
Polish miners and steel workers began a three-day strike for shorter hours, higher wages and better working conditions.
The China Clipper landed at Wake Island
The Hoover Dam is near completion.
