Dear Mrs. Mead, We reached here by a route down the Oregon coast and over the red wood highway - a delightful trip. The exposition is very beautiful. From her we to go Yosemite, Los Angeles, Grand Canyon, etc. Hope you are well. Love, Grace!

A magnificent tower! Reading the information on the card, it sounds fascinating. A keyboard at the base controlling the carillon sounds standard for these days, but 1939?!

Great image and the message just adds an extra little twist to the story of the trip.

With the travel to Yosemite and Grand Canyon, maybe they are geologists ;-)

What an interesting hole-y tower...:)

That must have been a great, though long, trip. Redwoods, San Francisco, Grand Canyon. Wow. We did the drive from California up the Oregon Coast once. It felt like it took forever.
