I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

What's a scrapbook without a Kilgallen clipping?

There was another babe that warmed Esther's heart...one Billie Bernice. She's listed as having been in three shows in the '40s......Boys and Girls Together, Walk With Music and Keep Off the Grass. Billie may have gotten a few spots in the scrapbook, but when Esther closed her eyes at night, me thinks it was all Mimi, all the time.

This past summer, Esther's nearest and dearest had some of Esther's work framed and here is the finished product.

Esther's Original Artwork




Seems Esther liked to take pen in hand and do a bit of drawing....she wasn't half bad! Some of these are easy to name, but others....hmmm?
