Part XIII: A Whirlwind Romance and A Walk Down the Aisle
January 1950-March 1951: Medway Plantation, Palm Beach, Paris, Hanover, Normandy, St. Tropez, Dublin, & Chestnut Hill
Ellen Glendinning Frazer and Lucius P. Ordway traveled together from South Carolina to the South of France, from Palm Beach to the beaches at Normandy, amid unspoiled landscapes and towns still in ruins shattered by the war. Apparently, in the course of this rambling fifteen-month odyssey between January 1950 and March 1951 Ellen and Lou Ordway realized they were inseparable. Here is a look back at their world on the threshold of a new beginning.
