TUESDAY'S TREASURES


When we were at the Library of Congress last week, I was surprised but delighted to see old photos on display, in a room that also featured many photos and documents relating to Bob Hope, which I will share in a later post.  I had a great time looking at them.   












I thought I would again share with Tom's Tuesday's Treasures.  I grew up in England watching old black and white Hollywood movies on TV, and know most of the stars shown.


Thank you for hosting Tom.

  5. WOW, look at Bob Hope, he was just a kid! I haven't been to the Library of Congress in years. Thanks for the tour Denise, perhaps I'll get there in person some day. I hope that you will return again with more treasures.

  8. I was at the Library of Congress when I was a kid. I know it would mean a lot more to me to visit there now. We have British friends who love all the old American western. No wonder people think we're all cowboys. While Americans were having shootouts, the British were having cozy murders. Lol

  12. I didn't know about that Hollywood Canteen. Slightly before I was old enough to read and drool over movie magazines. I would definitely recognize all of those old stars though -- they were still mostly active during the early 50s. Plus there are all those great old movie channels which I still look at occasionally.

  16. The HOllywood stars were always good about entertaining the troops. I recognize most of the names from old movies. Interesting memorabilia.

  19. I have never been a big movie fan so the focus on the stars wouldn't interest me much, but the historical perspective revealed in the exhibits sure would.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
