. . . purples and pinks and, most fragrantly, LILACS!
A drizzly and very mild, moist day today, which turned my thoughts towards London . . . where I’ll be in a couple weeks!
There are lots of puzzles in this Boomerang: e.g. who are the Rich Relations, what is the “holy city,” and who are Dane and Allie Battles? We also get a couple exciting pieces of news: spring is in bloom (despite the cold), and Eula and Gladice are on their way home (with negative effects on the circulation of the Boomerang duly noted)! We also get an interesting clue as to where some of the Boomerang man’s photographs might (eventually!) be found in print: in Saturday issues of the Des Moines Tribune circa 1918 . . . intriguing!
A green and luminous oasis along Houston Street . . .
Seeing symmetrical buildings today, from the upper east side (above) to Greenwich Village (below).
The Lancaster (above) was designed by James Renwick’s firm, James Renwick being the architect who designed Grace Church, featured in this post here.
