In March 2003 my sister Catherine visited the apartment at 115-117 East 96 Sreet, New York from where our gran, Kathleen Hickey, sent a card to a friend saying she had arrived safely in America. We think this is where she, her husband Jim Walsh and daughter Eileen lived for six years until 1935.
The Swan Hotel, 31 Broadway, Stratford, London E15 in March 2003. My grandfather James Walsh gave this as his place of work on his marriage certificate in 1926. He worked here as a wine cellerman at the time.

The above reference reveals that James Walsh worked for the duration of his time in America in the Hays Building, Maiden Lane, in New York’s Jewellry quarter. The building - which is just a few blocks from the World Trade Centre memorial - was converted to luxury aparments in 2000.
