Reminiscence of Dorothea Gorman
I remember very vaguely Henry Blanck, but I do recall Marie and Eva Blanck. My impression was of stately women, who were always dressed very nicely with full make-up and not a hair out of place. They always wore perfume and smiled alot. Of course, these are memories of a young child, perhaps about 60 years ago, so its quite possible, I recall only one but time may have blurred them into two. I remember that they visited my grandmother Frances Schadewald Holmesand her sister Mabel Wursthorn many times.
