Hey! a photo I've never seen from the 1936 trip - thanks Jess!
You're welcome. I thought this was a nice one.
Yikes. These Hollywood moms were clingy. I am thinking a list of celeb moms (from the golden era) who were practically attached at the hip.
I don't think Alta was just tagging along. In those days unmarried couples didn't travel together unchaperoned, so I think that's one reason she was there, plus Charlie and Paulette supposedly got married on this trip so that might be another reason she was traveling with them.
In looking at Paulette's outfit, because that's what I do, this looks like the same day the photos on the rickshaw in Singapore were taken!
