really liked it
bookshelves: just-amusing

This book is basically an encyclopedia of all things old fashioned, glamourous, and sophisticated that have long been forgotten. As someone with an old soul, I really enjoyed reading entries about archaic facets of society. I only wish the entries were longer. Regardless, it was an enjoyable look into the past, and Blume mentions parts of Manhattan which still sustain aspects of the past (like a speakeasy cellar).
