As usual, I got carried away and sorted through my parent's and grandparent's photos and eventually my own albums to make sure I has digital copies or scans of my favorite photos of places we lived. I really needed ones without people in them but I couldn't help but put in the one of myself and my playhouse in the collage.
I created this collage for a frame that I have bought to go over my corner desk/charging station in our living room. It is 8 x10 and looks like it is floating in the corner. [Frame purchase information]
It is interesting how the houses we live in change over the years. I discovered a photo of my grandparent's house with another person's name on it. Sure, enough, he was the man who lived in the house before my grandparents purchased the house. I now could find the house in earlier city directories. I found a tree that has his name it in and let them a message. No response so far.
He was a photographer. No wonder those photos are exceptional. I'll blog about that later when I have done more research.
