I'll have the full scoop on Thursday.

Woodrow Wilson on the campaign trail?

TAMMY said...

I was thinking Roosevelt visiting Pasadena, but I think Susan is right. It does look more like Wilson than Roosevelt.

Jean Spitzer said...

I thought Woodrow Wilson, too, when I first looked.

Woodrow Wilson stopping at the old Pasadena Depot and chatting it up with Taft. The fellow in the straw hat is my Uncle Grover the train conductor, reading a letter from his sweet heart Blanche whose in Reno trying to attain a quicky divorce.

Petrea said...

Woodrow Wilson dedicating the school that was named after him? I can't find anything online about Woodrow Wilson in Pasadena that isn't about that school.

Terry said...

I'm on a mission to win one of these, but it's not looking like it will be this week. I was going to mention Wilson Jr. High (my alma mater) too, but Petrea beat me to it. I don't recall ever hearing about him visiting the school. Of course, I do remember who won "best dressed" in the 1971 yearbook, so perhaps my priorities were a little off back then.

Petrea said...

Oh gosh, if it has anything to do with the school please give it to Terry. She's much better dressed than I am.

Mademoiselle Gramophone said...

Go Susan C.

Terry said...

No, Petrea, it wasn't I who was best dressed. It was Stacy in her snazzy gaucho midi pants and flashy boots. I was probably pictured in something I whipped up in that new-fangled perma-press in Mrs. Presnell's sewing class. Probably doesn't matter as I suspect Pasadena PIO has stumped us all again!

Could be Wilson, but just for fun, I'm going to take another guess because I know how sneaky PasadenaPIO can be. So I will say it is Norman Thomas, the Socialist candidate for president, who lost to Coolidge. That would make the year 1932 and the location: The caboose of a campaign train at Pasadena's station.
