Friday Aug 8

After supper at Netties
& services at the Synagogue
spend the rest of the eve.
promenading on Bridge
with friends.


Matt's Notes

Below are a couple of Library of Congress photos depicting early 20th Century Brooklyn Bridge promenading. They're not really from Papa's era (the top is from 1903 and the lower is undated) but they're fun to look at anyway.
