WOMEN WITH THE RIGHT INSTINCTS

Several years ago, contemplating things that keep the Manhattan of the BSI's golden age from disappearing altogether, I was struck by a New York Times article about a band of New York women, unconnected to the BSI and possibly with no interest to speak of in Sherlock Holmes, who nonetheless seem to be kinsprits of a real sort. Susan Dahlinger retrieved the article, and I've posted it on the website's Links page as a "Retro Link of the Week."  (I hope to have more in the future, because an interest in the BSI's history must include a history of its setting and times.)  For those interested in seeing what I'm talking about, go to http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/08/dining/08dame.html?_r=2&scp=1&sq=women+dining+vintage+clothing&st=nyt

    The retro minded in the NYC area might enjoy Parkerfest at the end of August.

  2. Does Dorothy Parker come under your heading of "Women with the Right Instincts," Dahlinger?

    One night wish to know Ms. Parker's take on ASH, though!

    Which instincts did you have in mind, Mr. Lellenberg?
