"Driving Miss Biddle: Michael Cole and the Life of a Lenox Chauffeur" will be presented at a Tea and Talk at Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum by James Cole, Michael's great grandson, on Saturday, April 27, at 3:00 pm. A Victorian Tea will follow the lecture.
As part of Ventfort Hall's ongoing series of Gilded Age reminiscences, the talk will offer a glimpse into the employer/employee relationship that developed between two families. In 1880 a nineteen-year-old, horse-loving Irishman, Michael C...ole, made his way from County Derry to Philadelphia.
