Back after a few weeks’ hiatus (Original Boomerang for April 27, 1919)

Original Boomerang, April 27, 1919

This week’s original Boomerang begins with news about friend Mrs Fagen has sold “the old homestead” and has moved into the Prine Apartments, which are very near “2813”: on the corner of 29th St and Cottage Grove. It looks as if there are still apartments there, in fact; see google street view of 2900 Cottage Grove below:

More intriguing allusions in this issue of the original Boomerang to Fred Eno’s life as a creative writer … to be commented upon further, anon!

A Classic!

This Singer treadle sewing machine was sighted this morning in front of a shoe repair shop that seems to be closing (alack and alas!) … maybe this Singer will find a good new home, though!?

Cotes du Rhone, Domaine de la Bastide 2013 … according to these folks here, the taste of the 2011 is “currant, blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, black currant, dust, leather, cherry, raspberry, licorice, and anise” and the “nose” is “spice box, cedar, dark fruit, vanilla, toast, smoke, tobacco, red fruit, violet, rose petal, oak, and mushroom”; I say that the 2013 is also very good! Reasonably priced too!
