Mister Ron's Basement #1603
We've dug out some great short stories from early 1900's magazines by Charles Battell Loomis!
Today's tale is classic Loomis -- one of the great tales that made him so popular with readers of the era! A young American lawyer is bowled over with love at first sight with a woman who passed him by in front of the British Museum and vanished! It is called 'The Lady of the Museum Steps.'
Time: approx thirteen and a half minutes
