#79 Here is To Bob And Pam And Right here’s To The Pleasure That Comes From Sharing Recollections

“Buckle up, mates – as a result of it is a story that even I’ve but to totally comprehend. As we speak I used to be scrolling by way of Fb Market, as a result of what else does one do when bored throughout a pandemic? As I used to be scrolling, I noticed the next itemizing: ”Judy Garland Director Chair, Meet Me in St. Louis Movie Premiere.” I actually gasped out loud however was a little bit skeptical…particularly for the reason that chair was listed with an asking worth of $35.

I reached out to the vendor and allow them to know of my enthusiasm for Judy Garland. I requested the vendor if the chair was authentic, and this was the message I obtained: “Sure, this director’s chair was made for the premiere of ”Meet Me in St. Louis”, which was held on November 22nd, 1944 on the Loew’s State Theater on Washington Avenue.” That was all it took – I requested for his or her deal with and the way quickly I might decide up the chair.

After I arrived on the vendor’s home, Pam (the vendor) met me on the entrance porch, handed me a photograph of the person who initially owned the chair, and started to share his life with me. His identify was Bob and he taught German and Theatre in St. Louis metropolis and county faculties for a number of many years. Bob did not have an oz. of German in him, however he took a visit to Germany one summer time and fell in love with the tradition – so he majored in German and minored in Theatre. Bob by no means missed out on flying to Germany to attend Oktoberfest to have a good time and meet up along with his native mates. When Bob wasn’t educating, he was working backstage at native St. Louis theaters as a stagehand.

Within the spring of 1983, the beloved Loew’s State Theatre, with its polished brass balcony and gold leaf ceilings, was slated for demolition. Tucked away within the previous theatre had been the director’s chairs that had been utilized by the principle forged members of ”Meet Me in St. Louis” on the 1944 premiere. Though the intricate theatre fell sufferer to a wrecking ball, the director’s chairs had been saved. Bob discovered of this unbelievable rescue and he, being an avid Garland fan, bought Garland’s chair. The chair was made by ”Gold Medal” Fold Furnishings Co. Judy’s identify was painted onto the chair.

From the sound of it, Bob lived a superb life crammed with numerous adventures. Just a little over a 12 months in the past, Bob’s well being started to fail. He did not have any native household, so it was time for him to purge his recollections and transfer nearer to household.

Pam helped Bob clear out his house that was filled with almost 86 years of life. It appeared like fairly the endeavor, and as a ”thanks”, Bob gave this chair to Pam.

After a lifetime of journey, Bob handed away on the age of 86 on December 24, 2019.

As Pam was sharing the fabulous lifetime of her expensive buddy with me, her eyes turned misty and she or he stated ”I really like this chair, however I’ve no room for it. I’ve many momentoes of Bob’s that I cherish, and I hate to half with this chair, however it does my coronary heart good to know that it is going to a loving house – Bob can be happy.” My eyes turned crammed with emotion and whereas there was a lot I wished to say, I knew I could not say it with out getting too emotional – so I simply thanked her and handed her the $35. As I used to be loading the chair into my automobile, she handed me a photograph of Bob and stated ”I feel it’s best to have this.” My coronary heart melted. Within the photograph, Bob is pictured on the left throughout certainly one of his visits to Amsterdam. He’s pictured with certainly one of his good mates that he met in Germany.

Here is to Bob and Pam and right here’s to the joy that comes from sharing recollections”

As we speak I used to be scrolling by way of Fb Market, as a result of what else does one do when bored throughout a pandemic? As I used to be scrolling, I noticed the next itemizing: ”Judy Garland Director Chair, Meet Me in St. Louis Movie Premiere.” I actually gasped out loud however was a little bit skeptical…particularly for the reason that chair was listed with an asking worth of $35.

I reached out to the vendor and allow them to know of my enthusiasm for Judy Garland. I requested the vendor if the chair was authentic, and this was the message I obtained: “Sure, this director’s chair was made for the premiere of ”Meet Me in St. Louis”, which was held on November 22nd, 1944 on the Loew’s State Theater on Washington Avenue.” That was all it took – I requested for his or her deal with and the way quickly I might decide up the chair.

After I arrived on the vendor’s home, Pam (the vendor) met me on the entrance porch, handed me a photograph of the person who initially owned the chair, and started to share his life with me. His identify was Bob and he taught German and Theatre in St. Louis metropolis and county faculties for a number of many years.

When Bob wasn’t educating, he was working backstage at native St. Louis theaters as a stagehand.

Within the spring of 1983, the beloved Loew’s State Theatre, with its polished brass balcony and gold leaf ceilings, was slated for demolition. Tucked away within the previous theatre had been the director’s chairs that had been utilized by the principle forged members of ”Meet Me in St. Louis” on the 1944 premiere. Though the intricate theatre fell sufferer to a wrecking ball, the director’s chairs had been saved. Bob discovered of this unbelievable rescue and he, being an avid Garland fan, bought Garland’s chair. The chair was made by ”Gold Medal” Fold Furnishings Co. Judy’s identify was painted onto the chair.

From the sound of it, Bob lived a superb life crammed with numerous adventures. Just a little over a 12 months in the past, Bob’s well being started to fail. He did not have any native household, so it was time for him to purge his recollections and transfer nearer to household.

Pam helped Bob clear out his house that was filled with almost 86 years of life. It appeared like fairly the endeavor, and as a ”thanks”, Bob gave this chair to Pam.

After a lifetime of journey, Bob handed away on the age of 86 on December 24, 2019.

As Pam was sharing the fabulous lifetime of her expensive buddy with me, her eyes turned misty and she or he stated ”I really like this chair, however I’ve no room for it. I’ve many momentoes of Bob’s that I cherish, and I hate to half with this chair, however it does my coronary heart good to know that it is going to a loving house – Bob can be happy.” My eyes turned crammed with emotion and whereas there was a lot I wished to say, I knew I could not say it with out getting too emotional – so I simply thanked her and handed her the $35. As I used to be loading the chair into my automobile, she handed me a photograph of Bob and stated ”I feel it’s best to have this.” My coronary heart melted. Within the photograph, Bob is pictured on the left throughout certainly one of his visits to Amsterdam. He’s pictured with certainly one of his good mates that he met in Germany.

Here is to Bob and Pam and right here’s to the joy that comes from sharing recollections”
