Genoa Skyscraper March 30, 1954

Lots to see and do in Genoa, but always time for a few postcards to the folks back home as HH and Jean spend Tuesday afternoon, March 30, 1954 through Wednesday morning in this seaport in northwest Italy.

March 30, 1954 Postcard to Hortons from HH & JBU
Thanks so much for your letter to Barcelona.  We are trying to soak it all in so we can remember as much as possible.
Never saw so many washings hung over balcony railings, etc.  Took some pix which we hope will show them.  This is 1st city we've seen any skyscrapers.
Ate in a delightful little Italian restaurant and became acquainted with man at next table.  Born in Italy but now from New York and on visit here since Dec. – cousin of Julius de Rosa.*
Went to La Scala _______ and saw opera "Amahl" in war devastated building, partially restored.  Love, Harold & Jean

*Julius La Rosa (b. 1930) was a singer who became famous as a regular on Arthur Godfrey's radio and television show in the early 1950s.
