Friday Show and tell

i love going to both of my grandfathers' homes and playing in the memorabilia they have from the generations who worked with movie and broadway productions, silent movies and the like.

last month i took these pictures that i have been promising to share



my Great uncle Frank Roberts and Ethil Barrymore



mary martin as peter pan signed to Frank- he was the stage manager for the broadway production of Peter Pan. Tirzah is peter pan crazy so this made her jaw drop!



and frank at a swanky opening of a show.

this is so "singing in the rain".

the notes from the playbills and radio shows and silent movies ads, etc have incredible names like claudette colbert and others that he worked with.
these are just some of my favourites.
