painting round-up and a lucky find [Apr. 6th, 2011|04:09 pm]

More portraits:

Gloria Hollister Anable (American explorer and conservationist)

Eileen Vollick (Canada's first licensed female pilot)

Joanna Baillie (Scottish playwright)

Gladys Bentley (American drag performer and blues singer)

Agnes MacPhail (first female Member of Parliament in Canada)

Unrelatedly, a screenprint of my old house that was torn down recently:

Also, last week I made a really lucky discovery in a local thrift shop: a letter signed by Robertson Davies tucked in between the pages of a play that he wrote in 1954. I wrote about it here and scanned the letter, if you'd like to have a look.

Aw, woman! These are so great. That's a beautiful a house, too. And what a find! I love finding neat little bits of history when I go thrifting.
