Interior of Great “Mormon” Tabernacle – 1937


Interior of the Great “Mormon” Tabernacle, Salt Lake City, Utah.  599.  1A218.  Deseret Book Company, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Interior of “Mormon” Tabernacle.   The Tabernacle has a seating capacity of 8,000 people.  It was built to accommodate the great gatherings of the “Mormon” people at their annual and semi-annual conferences.  The acoustic properties are exceptionally fine, the ticking of an ordinary clock being distinctly audible in all parts.  One of the unique features of the building is the great organ.  It has been rebuilt and enlarged by the Austin Organ Co. of Hartford, Conn. and today is conceded to be the peer of, if not superior to, any pipe organ in existence.  Regular services are held on Sunday at 2 P.M.  Visitors are always welcome.

Post marked Salt Lake City, Utah.  Apr 26, 1937.  Addressed to Miss Jmae Weaver, 13975 Steel A., Detroit, Mich.


4/26/37   Dear Jim [Jmae Weaver], Hope you are all well.  We are on way home.  Hope to be there Sat or Sunday.  Dad [Lee G. Weaver]”

The West trip for Lee and Florence was coming to an end and Grandpa was letting Leila and Jmae know when they needed to make everything ship-shape around the house.   Of course, by reputation, Effie Lee Weaver, Lee’s mother, would have made sure of that since she was staying with her granddaughters during their parents’ trip.
