Dad’s Photos #9.1 – The Rest of the Zeppelin Nightclub Story
Some of the remarkable things about blogging have come out in my posts of my Dad’s photos from the 30s. First, I’m very happy that people from many places have seen his images, & it really makes my heart glad to see the comments they’ve received. My father didn’t understand computer technology very much—he had plenty of smarts, but it was past his time, so to speak, & I think he would have marveled at people from far & wide being able to see this pictures.
Another wonderful thing about blogging, of course, is both the community & online friendships it can build. In that sense, I’m so gratified that Jacqueline T. Lynch of New England Travels (a fantastic blog, & one you really should check out) took the time to research a question that came up about the most recent Dad’s Photos post—namely: what was the story behind the zeppelin nightclub “outside Springfield, Mass,” as my father said in his caption, before he observed, “All that goes up is prices”?
Jacqueline left the following answer in the comments on that post: “Your zeppelin-shaped nightclub was ‘Toto's Zeppelin Nightclub’ located not in Springfield, but across the river in Holyoke.” But she went one better, because she added a full post about the nightclub on New England Travels today—the link is right here.
Thanks a lot Jacqueline, & hope any folks who had questions (or who are curious now) head over to New England Travels to get “the rest of the story.”
