Cylinders 19–31

Lenora was inconsistent in providing verbal dates and times when she recorded, so I continue to rely on her handwritten numbering on each tube. The assumption that these are chronological continues to hold true.

I had hoped to find the postcards Lenora reads in these recordings, but all I could find were the vestiges of their booklet. It seems there were five designs in total, two copies of each. That leaves only one St. Augustine attraction unused from the pack.

It feels personal to be handling remnants of a woman’s life as she speaks about them in her present. These objects carry on her story as much as her words. Just as we are able to derive a better understanding of Lenora by what she elected to keep, what she didn’t — the objects that are missing — can say just as much.
