Meet Me At The Gladstone

I am going to resist the urge to embellish this delicious find and will stick to the classic formula. Feel free to let your imaginations run wild.

One key, tied to a string. Found in a sealed envelope from the Gladstone Hotel in New York City.

The Gladstone was well-known apartment hotel off Park Avenue, home to Marilyn Monroe, Gloria Swanson, Marlene Dietrich, Carson McCullers and others.

Found in "Dr. Priestley Investigates" by John Rhode. Published by Dodd and Mead, 1930.

  1. Sounds like it might have been something worth investigating.... :)

  2. That looks like the top of a Dalek to me. Be very careful...

  3. How intriguing. Couod write a story using that as a starting point.

  4. I'm on Diane's page -- this sounds like the start of a novel.
