20 Bank Street

The next scrap of paper was found up inside of the lid of Grandma's Recipe Box. 

It reads:  "Gig - artist"

and includes the address of Colonial Studios found at 20 Bank Street in White Plains NY.

Does anyone know more about this history of this art studio and what this refers to? Please contact me if you do.

I looked up the business, but if it is still in existance, it is no longer located at this address.

Instead, I found a high-end, corporate, temporary furnished appartment complex located at 10-46 Bank Street. 

Google map of the address.

Bank Street Commons, presently at this address.

Sardines, Anyone?

This was found in Grandma's recipe box as a label that was apparently saved from the top of a sardine can. The first recipe is for a snack  "Rye Bread Savories".  This scrap of paper jumped out of the box by itself, which is why it included here now.  (Not because I like sardines, for sure!  Apparently Grandma did!). The second is for a salad.  Yummo!

Rye Bread Savories
On buttered rye bread place a piece of crisp lettuce and tope with an assortment of the following: KING OSCAR sardines, hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, chives, tomatoes. A delicious snack for a light lunch or suppertime.
