Keith,

Seems to me that there was a discussion of that crescent moon display on the IDLEWILD's PH roof some many years ago in the REFLECTOR. One suggestion was that the boat was chartered for some fraternal organization whose emblem included that crescent moon design. I'm not well-enough versed on various fraternal organizations to know which, if any, group uses that symbol. Perhaps the most notable fixture to adorn that PH roof was the fancy spray of electric lightbulbs atop the dome when the boat ran in the thirties. If only that old gal could talk, what stories she could tell!
