Japanese National Railways June 1951 Timetable
This Japanese National Railways (JNR) timetable book is displayed at the Railway Museum (Omiya, Saitama).  It appears to have been published for June 1951 (June, Showa 26), and shows a 2-C-C-2 electric locomotive (EF56, EF57, or EF59) pulling an express train.  This timetable serves as a time capsule for postwar Showa Japan -- the Ministry of Railways had been reformed, steam was on its way out, and the kanji were being simplified from kyujitai to shinjitai, but the streamliners and Shinkansen bullet trains were still in the future.
Radio City Music Hall
Part of Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall opened in 1932.  This 6000-seat theater is the home of America's most famous all-girl dance troupe, the Rockettes, and also hosts other events.  It used to show movies until the 1970s, and was almost closed before being saved by public demand and listed as a historical landmark.  The hydraulic elevators on the stage inside were reportedly the inspiration for the elevators on the U.S. Navy's aircraft carriers, which meant government agents were guarding Radio City Music Hall during World War II to prevent enemy spies from getting too close a look at the technology.  When I walked past Radio City Music Hall, the events advertised on the marquee included Dancing with the Stars and a Harry Potter soundtrack concert.
St. Patrick's Cathedral in Midtown
The newer of two cathedrals in New York City dedicated to Saint Patrick stands on Fifth Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets in Midtown Manhattan, across the street from the Atlas statue at Rockefeller Center.  This Neo-Gothic cathedral was designed by James Renwick, Jr., who also designed the Smithsonian Castle in Washington.  The cathedral was built from 1858 to 1878, with construction interrupted by the Civil War, and was dedicated in 1879.  It is now the seat of the Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, and measures 397 feet long by 330 feet tall.  As I walked past St. Patrick's Cathedral one cool winter evening, I thought it looked disproportionately small for its size next to the modern skyscrapers, but shone against the darkness with its white marble exterior.
Hello everyone!  I am back from a few days in New York City, where I walked all over the place.  I will be sharing some of my pictures from my trip, as I really enjoyed the past few days and hope you will enjoy learning about New York with me!
