|APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS! AND WHAT DO MAYFLOWERS BRING..?|
PILGRIMS, OF COURSE!
|Although popularly associated with their eventual settlement in Plymouth, our Pilgrim predescessors came to Cape Cod first! If their one winter here was as prolonged as the one we're evidently still weathering, we can't quite say we blame them for leaving.|
|APRIL IN PARIS|
Plan Pratique de l'Exposition Universelle de 1900 - Paris
Sing this jaunty tune as you stroll across the oldest Seine-spanning bridge in Paris. Completed in 1607, Pont Neuf became a perpetual fair of jugglers, tumblers, clowns, & barking hawkers who inundated passers-by with handbills advertising everything from basic dentistry & beauty products to crystal eyes & cures for consumption. By the time this 1792 view was engraved, the pomp & spectacle of commerce & street performers had largely been replaced by slave traders & pickpockets. While Pont Neuf's seedy reputation sent strolling sweethearts & curiosity seekers elsewhere, the so-called Bridge of Memories remains. In an April fog at midnight, some Parisians say, the delighted howls of that bygone era still sweep across the silent Seine.
