The Imperious Mrs Cornelius Vanderbilt III, nee Grace Wilson, returning to her Rolls Royce limousine from a clothing store along upper Fifth Avenue. Her chauffeur, two steps ahead of her, named Henry, waits to open the limousine's door for her. Mrs Vanderbilt never left her New York City home, 640 Fifth Avenue, without one of her many fur coats, her silver fox wrap, white gloves and one of her expensive hats, which were custom made for her.
