Brimfield Update

"Jim Leary, Bell Hop, Marsden House, Alex Bay, NY, Seasons 1920, 1221, 1922"

Little discoveries like this are why I'm in this business...the thought of a young man, Jim Leary, spending his summer as a bell hop in Alexandria Bay in the early 1920's! Think of it, the beginning of the roaring twenties! I'll bet he had a ball...I wonder if he's still alive? He'd be in his 90's now...

  1. No, he'd probably be a hundred and ten years old. My mom was born in late 1921. She's 90. That bell hop was at least in his mid teens in 1920. And who was Jay Margulies?
