Good Taste – In the Arcade
Built in 1828, it is the oldest indoor mall in the United States, home to an array of lovely small shops with a vintage feel, a cafe, a couple of eateries and – most importantly – The Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council. Checking in obligatory, satisfying weirdness guaranteed.
Three Heroes – Queens of Doughnuts
The Associated Press clip reads:
NEW YORK, Oct. 25. – Three American Y.M.C.A. women have worked under fire in the open frying 10,000 doughnuts a day for the victorious American troops thruout this week, a cable to the United War Work Campaign Headquarters, made public here today, announced.
The women are Mary Bray, Pawtucket, R.I.; Mary Holliday, Indianapolis, Ind., and Mrs. Edith Knowles, Phoenix, Ariz.
The work was done over an open bonfire, and when regular supplies ran short skillful substitutions were made.
The article refers to Mary Bray, obviously meaning her daughter, Gertrude Cottrell Bray (1888-1975).
