Retirement in Sensible Shoes

You’ll have to trust me on this– here is Greta Garbo, conspicuously anonymous in New York City, January 24, 1955.

    Garbo came into my grandfather’s salumeria (Italian deli) all the time during the 1950s and 60s; Nanny said she always had on a humongous hat or headscarf, and was nice but very quiet. *grin*

    I had always read where she was very self concious about her feet – and
    your picture confirms it!! She really did have big feet!!

    I was friends with Raymond Daum when I lived in Austin, Texas in the late 1980s. He later wrote a book called “Walking With Garbo.” He told me many wonderful stories about them walking together all over New York talking about politics, the environment, society, etc., but never her movies. Her apartment was very understated but did contain several impressionist paintings.
