City Directory

Drawing inspired by the 1900 Galveston City Directory. $50

After successfully dropping off the dog today I proceeded to having the most lovely day hanging out with my friend in Galveston, then doing historical research at the Rosenberg Library. The weather was glorious, we had a great lunch at Maceo’s, a stroll on the beach (including a visit to Murdoch’s), we talked about my plans for Storms of Malhado, and we laughed and joked a lot. We even bought scratch-offs and a lottery ticket at Bob’s Grocery – which was satisfyingly seedy – because we decided it was a lucky day. We won nothing in the scratch-offs, but that’s ok. I was feeling light and playful, the way I used to feel back when I was living in Galveston and life seemed in many ways simpler. I really miss those days, and sometimes I still long to move back.

Later, I went to the Rosenberg Library and perused the City Directory from 1900 as well as the one from 1961. They were very interesting to say the least.
