I came across the most interesting book recently titled Hotel Galvez - Queen of the Gulf by Gary Cartwright.

It  was so fascinating that I couldn’t put it down.

The last quarter of the book were letters from people who had stayed at the Hotel Galvez and had written to the hotel about their experience. One in particular caught my eye.


Idaleene Scheu Fuqua

Denton, Texas

It was July 1928 when my father, Fred H. Scheu, a Santa Fe station agent in Wayne Oklahoma, took his family on a vacation to Galveston.

Mother ordered our bathing suits from the Montgomery Ward catalogue...red for my brother and me so we could be seen on the beach and black for herself and Daddy.

All the suits were made of wool, so we could stay warm in the water. I had a red rubber bathing cap with little white bunnies running around it and mother had a blue one with a white wing on it.

Grandmother Ender,  whom we picked up in Waco, Texas, had never had a bathing suit in her life. She rented one from the bathhouse at the beach.

Grandmother joined a senior group one day and they picked up shells on the beach.

We stayed at the Galvez, the first hotel I ever stayed at, but it would not be the last, as I spent 55 years in the commercial air and travel business.”

Talk about a small world!
