1 EMMA JUNE HIBB 1927 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT EUROPEAN TRAVEL DIARY OF A KEEN EYED FLORIDIAN
SARASOTA MANATEE FLORIDA FL ASEA TO EUROPE 1927 Manuscript Very Good 
On offer is a very good pre Depression era European travel diary handwritten by Emma June Hibb of Manatee Florida, not too far from Sarasota. Mrs. Hibb is a keen observer and dedicated diarist traveling with a large group of Floridians from September 6, 1927 through October 11th when they return to New York. A quirky writer going from catty commentary - her girlfriend is miffed that they are traveling with so many of the people she can't stand from back in Florida to her observation that some men aboard ship sure do change their attitude when they discover a woman is married and her husband is also aboard ship. Emma also captures some choice moments on tour especially moving a passage wherein a French woman recognizes them for Americans and rushes over to embrace them all the while holding their hands and weeping in a thank you obviously the under current being the strong emotions still attached to the 'Great War' but 9 years in the past. She has the great habit of giving people nicknames based on place or memorable trait - Budwieser, Iowa, Carolina and West Palm to mention a few. The book has 2 pages filled with autographs from shipmates and Emma overwrites the book proper using the alphabet address area for other daily entries. This is a lovely travel diary of a woman with personality and keen eye. Overall VG.
