Dear Mrs. Lowesbury (?)

I am sending you this book which I hope you will enjoy and be ready for another when I go to see you next week. Enjoyed my walk home in the rain which was so gentile. That (?) I did not get wet in the least, and I felt happy to see the rain, which we need so much.

Blood On The Tracks

Black and white photograph, 8 inches by 10 inches.

I believe this photo was taken from the New Jersey side of the Hudson River, somewhere near Hoboken or a bit further west. If you look in the background, you can see a faint outline of what I believe are the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings.

The placement of the railroad tracks, the marshy area as well as the two large radio towers seem to line up. Please comment if you find otherwise!

Found in "Architectural Drawing and Planing" by William Goodban and Jack Hayslett. Published by McGraw-Hill, 1965.
