While I was in Rochester, I had the chance to visit a few sites of interest to fans of Louise Brooks. My thanks to Rochester resident Tim Moore who was my valued guide. All of the snapshots below were taken by myself, unless otherwise noted. Here are yet more of them, in no particular order.
|No doubt Louise Brooks read this inscription on the front of the Rochester Public Library more than once. After reading|
her notebooks which record her intellectual journey, I believe she held this notion close to her heart.
|The entrance of the old Sibley department store building, where Louise Brooks once encountered two-time|
co-star Richard Arlen (Rolled Stockings and Beggars of Life).
|Another view of the George Eastman House. No doubt, Brooks walked the path past the house many times.|
|Brooks' grave in Rochester. The small picture of the actress was left by an earlier visitor.|
|Thanks to Tim and Cathy for driving to the grave on a cold, rainy day. (Photo by Tim Moore.)|
|Tim and Cathy provided the wreath. They were generous guides and are great fans.|
