|CR Wright, Happy New Year|
Happy New Year!
2015 will bring a new book from Isabella Bradford, some celebratory events from Loretta Chase, and the historical nerdiness you’ve learned to love or at least tolerate in our blog.
To start the New Year off in the nerdy spirit, I invite you to a not-too-difficult (I hope) sleuthing expedition.
Today it’s a Happy New Year card by an artist who’ll be familiar to some of you. Since my nerdiness does not extend to paleoart (and a great many other topics), Charles R. Knight was a discovery for me. Not that I would have connected this sprightly watercolor with his more famous work. Circuses was what first came to mind. Then I finally deciphered the words. I’ll let you decipher them, and see if you can determine what and where the “new building” of 1922 was.
